Tris(2,2′-bipyridyl)ruthenium(ii) chemiluminescence

Author affiliations


This paper critically reviews analytical applications of the chemiluminescence from tris(2,2′-bipyridyl)ruthenium(II) and related compounds published in the open literature between mid-1998 and October 2005. Following the introduction, which summarises the reaction chemistry and reagent generation, the review divides into three major sections that focus on: (i) the techniques that utilise this type of detection chemistry, (ii) the range of analytes that can be determined, and (iii) analogues and derivatives of tris(2,2′-bipyridyl)ruthenium(II).
