Abstract:

A new highly efficient class of chemiluminescent oxalic acid derivatives, N-trifluoromethyl sulfonyl oxamides, has been discovered. One member of this class, N,N-bis2,4,5-trichlorophenyl-N,N-bistrifluoromethylsulfonyloxamide, has given the highest chemiluminescence quantum yield 34 reported for a chemiluminescent reaction in an organic solvent system. Modification of the structure of these oxamides has produced water-soluble derivatives but none were chemiluminescent in aqueous media. Author
