What is the chemical reaction shown in the picture? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:31, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

I specified the reaction in the image I posted. It is also next to the explanation of the reaction it is illustrating. I'm just getting started, so thanks for the feedback. -PRHaney

I don't know, but it looks like pure magic. Is that a wand I see? -dxy

Seems to contradict another article[edit]

In a chemiluminescent reaction, the direct product of a reaction is an excited electronic state, which then decays into an electronic ground state through either fluorescence or phosphorescence, depending partly on the spin state of the electronic excited state formed.

But fluorescence and phosphorescence are forms of photoluminescence, meaning the excited electron was made that way by a photon, not a chemical reaction. The statement seems to be wrong. (talk) 07:35, 7 June 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for pointing out this error. I have now fixed it by specifying that the light emission is either an allowed transition analogous to fluorescence, or a forbidden transition analogous to phosphorescence. Dirac66 (talk) 00:11, 16 September 2015 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to one external link on Chemiluminescence. Please take a moment to review my edit. You may add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it, if I keep adding bad data, but formatting bugs should be reported instead. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether, but should be used as a last resort. I made the following changes:
