Synthesis and Chemiluminescence of Luminol - YouTube
SYNTHESIS AND CHARACTERIZATION OF LUMINOL …
For the most part, fundamental surface science studies have focused on model systems where the surface of the metal is smooth and regular. On the other hand, it has long been suspected that the activity of “real” heterogeneous catalysts is dominated by reactions at step edges and other defect sites.

The dissociative chemisorption of methane on a metal catalyst is the rate limiting step in the steam reforming of natural gas, our primary source for the molecular hydrogen used in the Haber-Bosch process. In collaboration with the experimental group of Rainer Beck at the École Polytechnic Fédéral de Lausanne, we examined this reaction on a Pt surface containing step defects. We were able to differentiate between reactions at the step edges and the terrace sites, using both UHV molecular beam experiments and high-dimensional quantum scattering theory. Both approaches were also able to resolve the reaction probability with respect to the velocity and vibrational state of the methane molecule and the surface temperature, providing additional details about the reaction mechanism.
Chemiluminescence - the oxidation of luminol
Bullet splatter looks a lot different
than knife wound splatter
- Investigators need to be sparing
as luminol can destroy the
evidence -It reacts with blood without being mixed with any other oxidizing agent
-Luminol wears off in 30 seconds, preventing tested substances from glowing for long periods of time
-It detects trace amounts of blood that are many years old, even if the bloody surface/item was cleaned
-Also any area that is sprayed with
Luminol can be photographed to
provide permanent evidence of
a crime -Blood is not the only substance that triggers Luminol.
The oxidation of luminol is a good example
