Bis(2,4,6-trichlorophenyl) oxalate

Molecule Structure Image

Description

 

Bis-2,4,6-(trichlorophenyl) oxalate is one of the major ingredients in glow sticks. When combined with a fluorescent dye like 9,10-bis(phenylethynyl)anthracene, a solvent, and a weak base, and hydrogen peroxide, the mixture will start a Chemiluminescence reaction to glow an fluorescent green color. In a glowstick a fluorescent dye converts much of the light energy produced into the visible spectrum producing a brighter glow.
