chemiluminescence

Emission of radiation resulting from a chemical reaction. The emitting species may be a reaction product or a species excited by energy transfer from an excited reaction product. The excitation may be electronic, vibrational or rotational; if the luminescence occurs in the infrared the expression infrared chemiluminescence is used.
