Chemiluminescence from reactions with bis-cyclometalated iridium complexes in acidic aqueous solution Academic Article uri icon


  • Chemical reactions between certain bis-cyclometalated iridium complexes, cerium(IV) and organic reducing agents in aqueous solution produce an emission of light which in some cases is more intense than that from analogous reactions with conventional ruthenium-based reagents, thus providing a new avenue for chemically-initiated luminescence detection.
