Alternative hydrogen peroxide sources for peroxyoxalate “glowstick” chemiluminescence demonstrations
MetadataShow full item record
Simple protocols have been devised for peroxyoxalate chemiluminescence demonstrations that use urea–hydrogen peroxide or sodium percarbonate as oxidants in place of aqueous solutions of hydrogen peroxide. The procedures described are compatible with well-known peroxyoxalates and fluorescers and have been found to be convenient for use for outreach activities in venues with limited laboratory facilities.
