Abstract:

An infrared-emitting chemiluminescent system with no visible emission has been discovered. Spectral maximum is at 790 nm. Lifetime is about 30 minutes, but catalysis can be varied to lengthen lifetime. This new system is based on the reaction of bis2,4,5-trichloro-6-carbopentoxyphenyloxalate with hydrogen peroxide in the presence of the infrared fluorescer, 16,17-didecyloxyviolanthrone. Author
