Electrochemiluminescence

Electrochemiluminescence, or electrogenerated chemiluminescence (ECL), is the phenomenon whereby light results from a chemical reaction based on excited species derived by anodic oxidation and/or cathodic reduction. Many species luminesce when electrolysed, and these have been exploited in various technologies. The chemistry and analytical technologies based on electrochemiluminescence are outlined here.
