Paper Abstract

This paper examines the action of various metal catalysts on red emitter formation. The chlorine content of chemically generated singlet oxygen was monitored by chemical analysis and chromatography. The presence of chlorine in chemically generated singlet oxygen indicates that chlorine plays some role in red emitter formation. The radiative life of the emitter was calculated from spatial chemiluminescence decay in the chemiluminescence cell. Results showed that red emission is represented by a characteristic spectrum independent of the catalyst used. This observation eliminates the possibility of a metal-containing emitter. A consideration of Cl2, ClO2.O2, Cl2O2, and O4 as possible emitting species is given. Experimental red spectra obtained show a series of fringes which may be caused by quantum interference in a bound-free transition
