chemiluminescence

https://doi.org/10.1351/goldbook.C01045
Emission of radiation resulting from a chemical reaction. The emitting species may be a reaction product or a species excited by energy transfer from an excited reaction product. The excitation may be electronic, vibrational or rotational; if the @L03641@ occurs in the @IT07399@ the expression @IT07399@ chemiluminescence is used.
