The chemiluminescence (CL) arising from the reaction of bis(2,4,6-trichlorophenyl)oxalate (TCPO) with H2O2 in the presence of a novel blue fluorescer, furandicarboxylate derivative, has been studied. The relationship between the CL intensity and concentrations of peroxyoxalate, sodium salicylate, H2O2 and furandicarboxylate derivative as fluorescer has been investigated. Kinetic parameters for the peroxyoxalate chemiluminescence (PO-CL) including intensity at maximum CL, time at maximum intensity, total light yield, theoretical maximum level of intensity and pseudo-first-order rate constants for the rise and fall of the CL burst (kr and kf) were also calculated from the computer fitting of the corresponding CL intensity/time profiles. It was found that the furandicarboxylate derivative can be used as an efficient blue fluorescent emitter.
