This review provides a basic introduction to the Electrogenerated Chemiluminescence (ECL) technique. The fundamental concepts, mechanisms and bio-analytical applications are briefly discussed. In addition, the trends of current ECL materials research are summarized in relation to their potential use in biological systems. Particular emphasis is given to new water soluble ECL labels and to encapsulation of emitting materials in nanostructures including silica nanoparticles, carbon nanotubes and quantum dots.

Abstract

This review provides a basic introduction to the Electrogenerated Chemiluminescence (ECL) technique. The fundamental concepts, mechanisms and bio-analytical applications are briefly discussed. In addition, the trends of current ECL materials research are summarized in relation to their potential use in biological systems. Particular emphasis is given to new water soluble ECL labels and to encapsulation of emitting materials in nanostructures including silica nanoparticles, carbon nanotubes and quantum dots.
