Electrobioluminescence—a novel method for understanding bioluminescent mechanisms
The chemistry of the formation of excited states in living systems is probed by using the electrochemical techniques. A new method of using a living animal as an electrode provides mechanistic details on the various steps involved and the overall energetics of the process of excited state formation. This is discussed in detail with reference to the newly developed earthworm electrode which glows upon potential sweep or step programme in an electrochemical cell.
