Description générale

Luminol is a very efficient and commonly used chemiluminiscent compound in condensed phase. When basic solutions of luminol containing oxygen are treated with an oxidizing agent, light is produced. Oxidising agents capable of initiating this particular reaction are Nitrogen dioxide, PAN, hydrogen peroxide, ozone and other atmospheric oxidants.


  • As a chemiluminiscent substance. Used to measure opsonic and phagocytic function.
  • As a biological sensor. Used to detect the polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNL) response in a patient with a myeloperoxidase (MPO) deficiency.
  • Used as a forensic test for blood.
Luminol has been used in a protocol to study the immune-related responses in Arabidopsis thaliana via luminol/peroxidase-based assay.

When polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNL) and soluble or particulate matter interact, the cells produce chemiluminescence, linked to activation of the oxidative metabolism of the cells. PMNL isolated from a patient with a myeloperoxidase deficiency were found to produce almost no luminol-dependent...

A wide range of domestic and industrial substances that might be mistaken for haemoglobin in the forensic luminol test for blood were examined. The substances studied were in the categories of vegetable or fruit pulps and juices; domestic and commercial...
Graphene has emerged as the new wonder material. Being only one atom thick and composed of carbon atoms arranged in a hexagonal honeycomb lattice structure, the interest in this material has exploded exponentially since 2004 when it was first isolated and identified using a very simple method.
