Abstract:

Decomposition of hydrogen peroxide in water is accompanied by an ultraweak luminescence. The quantum yield equals approximately one photon per 10 to the 14th power to 10 to the 16th power transformation acts of hydrogen peroxide. The kinetics of luminescence and its dependence on the reaction of hydrogen peroxide decomposition were investigated an attempt was made to determine the elemental reaction which is accompanied by a most intensive luminescence.
