Abstract : The reaction of 2-methylene-3-acetyloxazoline-4,5-dione (1) with hydrogen peroxide in the presence of a fluorescent aromatic hydrocarbon generates light. The mechanism for light generation was investigated and found to parallel that of oxalate esters. The reaction of dione (1) is catalyzed by added base, but the chemiluminescence intensity drops as the base concentration increases. A reaction sequence is proposed consistent with the experimental observations.
