Abstract:

Quantitative photoelectric measurements of the intensity of emitted light were used to investigate the catalytic action of istopestox on the chemiluminescence of luminol in the presence of hydrogen peroxide in alkaline solutions. Isopestox in relatively small concentrations considerably increases the intensity of the luminescence of luminol. The Michaelis constant was determined for this reaction, which may be regarded as a model reaction of the enzymatic peroxidative effect of the organophosphoric compound isopestox.
