Abstract : An apparatus was constructed for the study of the heterogeneous catalysis of chemiluminescent systems. Metals (Pt, Pd, Ag) and supports (charcoal, silica, alumina) were investigated as catalysts for luminol, lophine and skatole in the DMSO, t-BuOK, O2 system. Enhancement of light emission has not, thus far, been observed. The addition of a sensitizing agent (fluorescein) to the heterogeneous systems increased the light output relative to the unsensitized systems. (Author)
