Abstract : A new highly efficient class of chemiluminescent oxalic acid derivatives, N-trifluoromethyl sulfonyl oxamides, has been discovered. One member of this class, N,N'-bis(2,4,5-trichlorophenyl)-N,N'-bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyl)oxamide, has given the highest chemiluminescence quantum yield (34%) reported for a chemiluminescent reaction in an organic solvent system. Modification of the structure of these oxamides has produced water-soluble derivatives but none were chemiluminescent in aqueous media. (Author)
