A novel redox driven chemiluminescent material built on a terthienyl system, namely 5,7-di-ethylenedioxythiophen-2-yl-2,3-dihydro-thieno[3,4-d]pyridazine-1,4-dione (ETE-Lum), which is soluble in both organic media and basic aqueous solution was synthesized and characterized. Furthermore, its polymer, PETE-Lum, which is one of the most rare examples of chemiluminescent polymeric materials bearing a pyridazine unit, was obtained successfully by electrochemical means. Both of the materials give chemiluminescence either by treatment with oxidants (H2O2 and/or KMnO4) or by the application of a potential pulse.
