Light Emission at Electrodes: An Electrochemiluminescence Demonstration.
Bolton, Ed; Richter, Mark M.
Journal of Chemical Education, v78 n5 p641-43 May 2001
Electrochemiluminescence involves the production of light near an electrode surface by generating species that can undergo highly energetic electron transfer reactions. Presents a demonstration that uses Ru(bpy)32+ (bpy = 2,2'-bipyridine) as the light-emitting molecule and tri-n-propylamine (C9H21N) as a coreactant. (Contains 25 references.) (ASK)
