Paper Abstract

Many chemical sensors based on fluorescence spectroscopy have been reported in applications, ranging from biomedical and environmental monitoring to industrial process control. In these diverse applications, the analyte can be probed directly, by measuring its intrinsic absorption, or by incorporating some transduction mechanism such as reagent chemistry to enhance sensitivity and selectivity. Hydrogen Peroxide is a colorless liquid. It is a common oxidizing and bleaching agent. It plays an important role in High Power Laser such as Chemical Oxygen Iodine Laser (COIL). As it is on the Hazardous substance list and on the special health hazard substance list, detection of Hydrogen Peroxide is of great importance. In the present study the detection of hydrogen Peroxide is by fluorescence quenching of laser grade dye Rhodamine B. Estimation of rate constant of the bimolecular quenching reaction is made.
