Abstract  

The results of curium chemiluminescence investigations are generalized and the results of search for americium chemiluminescence are described. Some chemiluminescence reactions of americium, where the initial and the final forms were Am(IV) or (VI) and Am(III), respectively, were discovered. The Am(III) ion was the emitter of chemiluminescence, problably, only in the reduction reaction of Am(IV) decatungstate by reductants such as N2H4, some of its derivatives, EDTA and DTPA. The yield of chemiluminescence was estimated as 10–9–10–10 quanta per reaction act. In other chemiluminescent reactions discovered, the emitter of chemiluminescence was probably the oxidation products of the reductant.
