Abstract

Chemiluminescence results from reactions with a very high energy yield, which produce a potentially fluorescent product molecule; reaction energy passed to the product may result in an excited state and subsequent production of a single photon of light. The light yield is usually low, but can approach one photon per molecule in bioluminescent reactions catalyzed by dedicated enzymes.
