Abstract:

The utilization of aqueous environments as media for peroxyoxalate chemiluminescence of rubrenesulfonate was further explored. The fluorescence and chemiluminescence of rubrenesulfonate was found to increase with the addition of Deceresol NI, a nonionic surfactant, and polyvinylpyrrolidone PVP, a nonionic water-soluble polymer. Although the chemiluminescence of rubrenesulfonate was found to be enhanced in the presence of sodium decylsulfate SDeS, no enhancement was observed for its fluorescence. However, in the presence of hexadecyltrimethylammonium chloride HDTCl, the fluorescence of rubrensulfonate was enhanced, while no influence on its peroxyoxalate chemiluminescence was observed. The greatest chemiluminescence enhancement was noted with formulations that contained both PVP and SDeS, revealing a dramatic synergistic effect of surfactants with polymers on aqueous peroxyoxalate chemiluminescence.
