Abstract

Electrogenerated chemiluminescence (ECL) occurs when redox reactions between oxidizing and reducing species generated electrochemically result in the production of light. Since the reactant species are frequently radical ions, this luminescence is sometimes called radical ion chemiluminescence, although a number of cases of ECL have now been described where at least one of the reacting partners is not a radical ion. Because a number of reviews (1-6) on ECL have appeared since the initial experiments described in 1964, only a brief outline of the methods and recent results will be presented here. A review of the experimental methods in ECL and an outline of the results of the as yet unreviewed research of 19701972 will appear shortly. (7)
