Luminol-O-2-nitrobenzylate (1), which releases luminol upon light irradiation at 366 nm and can measure light power, was developed. 1 has a 2-nitrobenzyl group at the carbonyl oxygen of luminol. The released luminol emitted light in the presence of NaOH and H2O2. In the concentration range of 0.01-1 μM 1,CL intensities of released luminol increased in proportion to increase of the concentration of 1 with a light irradiation time of 5 min. The CL intensity of 1 increased in proportion to the light power in the range of 450-650 mW/cm2.
