Abstract:

The chemiluminescence of dimethyldioxetanone 1 in the presence of easily oxidized aromatic hydrocarbons was studied. It was observed that the rate of reaction of 1 depends upon the nature and concentration of the aromatic hydrocarbon. The efficiency of light production was correlated with the one electron oxidation potential of the hydrocarbon. These results are interpreted in terms of the recently described chemically initiated electron exchange luminescence. Author
