Abstract:

The invention is directed to a light producing microemulsion formed in the presence of a surfactantcosurfactant pair from an oil phase medium having at least an oxalate derivative and a fluorescer compound dissolved in it and an aqueous phase medium containing at least an oxidant dissolved in it. The light produced in such a microemulsion can be used to analyze aqueous oxidant-containing samples by comparing the amount of light produced by microemulsion formed from a known quantity of an oxidant to a similar sample containing an unknown quantity of an oxidant. The comparison can be made by any well known photosensitive means and can be computerized. Patent applications. mjm
