Furan derivatives (synthesized and purified in organic laboratories) are a great interest as fluorescent emitters for peroxyoxalate chemiluminescence. Reaction of peroxyoxalates such as bis-(2,4,6-trichloro-phenyl) oxalate with H2O2 can transfer energy to fluorophore via formation of dioxetanedione intermediate. Furan derivatives used as a novel fluorescer in this study which produces a blue light in the chemiluminescence systems. The relationship between the chemiluminescence intensity and concentrations of TCPO, sodium salicylate, hydrogen peroxide and the fluorescer has been investigated. The linear ranges for Furan derivatives were 0.25–5 × 10−4 M and 0.1–5 × 10−4 M (A and B compounds, respectively). Kinetic parameters for the peroxyoxalate-chemiluminescence were also calculated from the computer fitting of the corresponding chemiluminescence intensity/time profiles.
