|This 6" light stick (glow stick) is made of a flexible plastic tube containing a thin-walled glass tube. Inside the light stick's glass tube is a solution of hydrogen peroxide, H2O2, dissolved in a phthalic ester. Outside the glass tube is a solution containing a phenyl oxalate ester and a fluorescent dye. In the yellow-green light sticks the dye is 9, 10-bis (phenylethynyl) anthracene. When the light stick is bent, the thin-walled glass tube breaks and its contents mix with the solution outside. Then, the H2O2 reacts with the phenyl. During the reaction, an intermediate forms in the light stick tube that transfers energy to the dye molecules. The energized dye molecules release this energy as visible light. The process in which energy from a chemical reaction is released directly as light is called chemiluminescence.|
Neon Glow stick, Chemical Light Stick
Light sticks generate chemiluminescence in an enclosed container, making them suitable for use in hazardous environments, underwater, and by children. The lack of heat may be its main advantage over traditional lighting. This safety factor of the light stick, the low cost of assembly, and the novelty of carrying a ‘tube of light’ contribute to the fact that chemiluminescence has become a profitable enterprise and is researched outside of academic inquiry. Neon glow sticks or light sticks are the most basic use of this technology for consumer use.
