In mammalian tissues, ultraweak chemiluminescence arising from biomolecule oxidation has been attributed to the radiative deactivation of singlet molecular oxygen {[}O-2 ((1)Delta(g))] and electronically excited triplet carbonyl products involving dioxetane intermediates. Herein, we describe evidence of the generation of O-2 ((1)Delta(g)) in aqueous solution via energy transfer from excited triplet acetone. This involves thermolysis of 3,3,4,4-tetramethyl-1,2-dioxetane, a chemical source, and horseradish peroxidase-catalyzed oxidation of 2-methylpropanal, as an enzymatic source. Both sources of excited carbonyls showed characteristic light emission at 1,270 nm, directly indicative of the monomolecular decay of O-2 ((1)Delta(g)). Indirect analysis of O2 (1Dg) by electron paramagnetic resonance using the chemical trap 2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidine showed the formation of 2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidine-1-oxyl. Using {[}O-18]-labeled triplet, ground state molecular oxygen {[}O-18(2) ((3)Sigma(g) -)], chemical trapping of O-18(2) ((1)Delta(g)) with disodium salt of anthracene-9,10-diyldiethane-2,1-diyl disulfate yielding the corresponding double-{[}O-18]-labeled 9,10-endoperoxide, was detected through mass spectrometry. This corroborates formation of O-2 ((1)Delta(g)). Altogether, photoemission and chemical trapping studies clearly demonstrate that chemically and enzymatically nascent excited carbonyl generates O-18(2) ((1)Delta(g)) by triplet-triplet energy transfer to ground state oxygen O-2 ((1)Delta(g)), and supports the long formulated hypothesis of O-2 ((1)Delta(g)) involvement in physiological and pathophysiological events that might take place in tissues in the absence of light.
