Emitters of chemiluminescence occurring during autoxidation of substituted hydroquinones in water


A mathematical processing method for determination of spectral parameters of chemiluminescence emitters during the autoxidation of phenolic compounds in aqueous-alkaline media has been developed. The presence of a single luminescence emitter (the corresponding p-benzoquinone in the triplet state) has been demonstrated in the hydroquinone–oxygen–water system. The emitters spectra have been obtained.
