Abstract
This study focuses on the fact that the chemiluminescence in the visible re gion is emitted from the H2O2/gallic acid/ horseradish peroxidase (HRP) and the H2O2/gallic acid acetaldehyde (MeCHO) systems. The concentration depen dence of chemiluminescence intensity that led to the different response of HRP and MeCHO toward H2O2 indicates that the photon emission participates w ith peroxidase activity including an electron transfer reaction. From our e xperimental results, in this study, we postulated a reaction process for ch emiluminescence based on a one-electron redox shuttle from H2O2 by peroxida se. The photon intensity and spectra data from the H2O2/HRP and the H2O2/Me CHO systems with various catechins were not only affected by HRP and MeCHO but also corresponded with the chemical structure of catechins. The energy calculated from the spectra is 47-64 kcal/mol. These results suggested that the chemiluminescence of both systems arose from excited carbonyl compound s produced by an intermediate of the alkyl radical and the metal-bound hydr oxyl (compound II species). Hydroxyl radical inhibition, showing a notable increase from the gallic acid addition, makes the decay of the hydroxyl for m of heme iron the most likely candidate for the chemiluminescence.
