Luminol: Triethylene glycol, the solvent for your first reaction, and heavy mineral oil are both high
boiling, high molecular weight solvents. What difference in their structural properties
renders the triethylene glycol the only one that will work?
2. Your chemiluminescence reaction will actually occur very slowly in air. What component
of air will bring about this reaction and what is its approximate concentration in air? If you
had a stoppered flask with basic luminol and then opened it to the air, why would the
chemiluminescence be more pronounced than with the flask stoppered? Why is the
chemiluminescence even more pronounced with the ferricyanide/hydrogen peroxide
mixture?
