chemiluminescent methods of detection

in analysis
Methods which utilize gas or liquid phase reactions between two molecules which produce a third molecule in an @E02257@. The @W06659@ distribution of the light emission from the excited molecule is characteristic of the species; in some circumstances this may be used to identify and to determine the concentration of one of the reacting species.
