Chemical energy to electromagnetic energy transer

  1. Does anyone know of reaction that can generate a a steady source of light? Preferably one easier to activate than burning of magnesium strips(which is too momentary anyway, I'm trying to make a chemical reaction that can eventually power a photoresistor/ light).

    Burn a candle?
  4. The word you are looking for is chemiluminescence. Unfortunately I can't help much more than that because you seem to have a very specific application in mind.
