  • The quenching effect of l-cysteine, l-methionine on strong chemiluminescence of bis(2,4,6-trichlorophenyl)oxalate-H(2)O(2) system in the presence of rhodamine 6G was studied. The chemiluminescence parameters were evaluated from computer fitting of the resulting intensity-time plots. These systems resulted in Stern-Volmer plots in the quencher concentration range of 4.0 x 10(-6) to 4.0 x 10(-5)M, with K(Q) values of 1.64 x 10(4) and 8.0 x 10(4)M(-1) for l-metionine and l-cysteine, respectively. Also, this study describes the employment of l-histidine as a highly potent signal enhancer in peroxyoxalate chemiluminescence in the presence of rhodamine 6G.
