FERREIRA, Ernesto Correa  and  ROSSI, Adriana Vitorino. Chemiluminescence as an analytical tool: from the mechanism to applications of the reaction of luminol in kinetic based methods. Quím. Nova [online]. 2002, vol.25, n.6a, pp.1003-1011. ISSN 0100-4042.

Relevant aspects of proposed mechanisms of the chemiluminescent reaction of luminol are presented and commented to emphasize its perspectives for kinetic analysis. A careful search for analytical applications of this reaction is discussed in order to point out new trends of the studies. Kinetic analysis using the luminol reaction is proposed to be a very attractive due to the good performance of the reaction in analytical applications and the positive characteristics of kinetic analysis, such as low cost and sensibility. It is pointed out that kinetic analysis using the chemiluminescent reaction of luminol should be encouraged.

Keywords : luminol; chemiluminescence; kinetic analysis.
