Abstract:

The chemoluminescence of Luminol caused by the oxydizing influence of potassium-ferro-cyanide may be controlled in such a manner that either a non- catalytic or a catalytic reaction will result. Both reaction types are susceptible to inhibiting influences by foreign additions hydrochinon causes a very effective inhibition of the non-catalytic reaction and cancellation of luminescence in very low concentration. Other inhibitors show a much weaker effect. The assumed reaction mechanism of luminescence is discussed.
