The Chemistry of Bioluminescence

One of nature’s wonders is the ability of living things to produce their own light. This phenomenon is known as bioluminescence, and occurs in several species across the planet. Explore the chemistry behind this phenomenon with an exciting chemical experiment.

This activity was created by Gianluca Farusi and Susan Watt, who created a great experiment to demonstrate this chemical reaction. This experiment demonstrates the kind of chemical reaction that occurs to create bioluminescence.
