Abstract:

Visible, long-lasting chemiluminescence results when diphenic anhydride and p-nitroperoxybenzoic acid in THF are treated with powdered KOH in the presence of a catalytic chemiluminescence CIEEL activator. This chemiluminescent process is presumed to involve in situ generation of diphenoyl peroxide, which then undergoes chemiluminescent decomposition by the CIEEL mechanism. Carboxylate 4, the precursor to diphenoyl peroxide in this reaction, was generated by an entirely different route from peroxide 5. Author
