The visual appeal of the 1st evaluation in 1965  and the 1st monograph in 1968  on chemiluminescence confirmed the level of the phenomenon of sunshine emission from the response of natural compounds in resolution. seeing that then the num ber of chemiluminescent compounds has vastly elevated, even if the advan ces in concept and, extra lately, purposes are most likely extra major. the current paintings is written via authors who, including E. H. White, helped to convey the examine of chemiluminescence into the trendy period. notwithstanding many investigators are making contributions to the topic, no matter if the variety of fans nonetheless is still small. it isn't our goal to put in writing an exhaustive account of chemiluminescence, nonetheless much less of bioluminescence, and we have now focused on making the landmarks within the zone frequent to a readership outdoor the circle of experts. The emphasis is at the variety of natural compounds displaying gentle emission with little or no description of the quite few inorganic or the extra a number of organic examples that have been came across. we are hoping that many of the pleasure of the amazing demonstrations of chemiluminescence which might be made appears to be like within the textual content, albeit within the kind of highbrow pride and curiosity. We thank Prof. Dr. J. Stauff, Frankfurt for his beneficiant recommendation and his severe reviews. The bankruptcy facing Peroxy-oxalate chemiluminescence has been commented up on severely through Dr. M. M. Rauhut, Stamford, Connecticut which we gratefully acknowledge.
