(Chemical Equation Presented) Second generation polyphenol dendrimers (PDs) with different core molecules were synthesized, and their chemiluminescence (CL) was measured by reacting the PDs with H2O2 under alkaline conditions. All of the PDs showed a strong CL, more than 120-fold greater than that of gallic acid. Various CL intensities of the PDs were obtained using different core molecules in the PDs. The distance between each dendron in the PD structure is crucial in the PD CL intensity.
