Associations of Luminescence with chemical compounds

  • Although the ruthenium-modified oligonucleotide hybridized to an unmodified complement luminesces intensely, the ruthenium-modified oligomer hybridized to the rhodium-modified oligomer shows no detectable luminescence [29].
  • These include electron spin resonance, thermoluminescence, optically stimulated luminescence, uranium series, and amino acid racemization [30].
  • We report that light production by fireflies can be stimulated by nitric oxide (NO) gas in the presence of oxygen and that NO scavengers block bioluminescence induced by the neurotransmitter octopamine [31].
  • Single-molecule luminescence spectroscopy measurements on CdSe quantum rods with an aspect ratio between 1 and 30 confirm a sharp transition from nonpolarized to purely linearly polarized emission at an aspect ratio of 2 [32].
  • Singlet-oxygen chemiluminescence in peroxide reactions [33].
