Phosphorometric, flourometric, and absorption analyses have been developed for the measurement of amino acids, carbamic acids, and carbamates. The absorption analysis may be done in any solvent while the other two methods are limited to non-re-emitting solvents. Water is not excluded in any of the analyses. A carbamate or carbamic acid can be detected even in the presence of amino acids as low as 0.5%, with an overall accuracy of ± 0.3)%. Tentative assignments have been made for the n, π* direct triplet excitation bands for the carbonyls of glycine and its carbamic acid, acetyl chloride, ethyl acetate, and acetamide. The first two are based on absorption and phosphorescence data while the last four are based on phosphorescence data alone.
