Re: Luminol Reaction measure
If your school has palm-top computers with scientific interfaces then this will make your job a lot easier. For my project I was able to create a basic light detector by using an LDR (light dependant resistor) connected through a support system to a palm-top which could be adjusted to take and automatically log measurements of light intensity over a set period and with set intervals. After calibrating the LDR with a light source of known intensity, I was able to set-up the equipment, press “go” and after thirty seconds I had more than 250 sets of data in a spreadsheet. It should be noted that often, an increase in rate will compromise total light yielded (light sticks can glow for weeks in a freezer). Without this equipment a more traditional (but less accurate) approach can be adopted by laying out a long thin piece of transparent tubing around a clamp stand with a funnel at the top through which to pour your reactants. An estimation of relative rate can be made by noting the time or point on the tube at which luminescence stops.
