Lyoluminescence of luminol induced by -irradiated NaCl has been studied in aqueous amines. The emission spectra of lyoluminescence are recorded on 400 ASA Kodak film using a Fuess spectrograph. A broad continuous emission band appears in the visible region from 390 to 500 nm. The emission band showed two peaks centered at 430 and 470 nm. The 430 nm peak is more intense in secondary amines while the 470 nm band is more intense in primary amines. The mechanism of light emission is based on the comparative study of lyoluminescence, fluorescence and chemiluminescence of luminol in aqueous amines.
