Ehries Santiago October 28, 2019 Advanced Topics in Science Mr. Johnson Background Research Rough Draft This experiment examines the amount of luminol and the brightness of the light during the mixing of the substances. Luminol is a chemical compound ( C 2 H 7 N 3 O 2) that is oxidized by hydrogen peroxide and a metal that releases energy as light. Luminol is used to find traces of blood left at a crime scene. Blood contains a protein called hemoglobin that carries oxygen from the lungs to cells. Small amounts of iron in hemoglobin is sufficient to initiate the chemiluminescent between luminol and hydrogen peroxide ( Neil, Jayne and David, 2006). When it is first sprayed, it is clear and if blood particles were left behind then it will present a blue glow ( Robert Parker, 2016). The conclusions of the experiment are important for people such as investigators and victims, who are searching for a solution to a case and what happened.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
