Abstract:

A study has been made to discover which CW compounds either of historic or of current interest can be detected by production of chemiluminescence. Almost all CW agents that contain halo or cyano groups give chemiluminescence with luminol and hydrogen peroxide in basic solution. Correlations have been obtained between structure and chemiluminescence using Taft substituent constants and Pauling electronegativity values for halogen bonded to carbon, sulfur, phosphorus, or arsenic.
