Do you still feel comfortable calling this reaction tenebrescence? I really think it more accurate to describe it as phosphorescence.--Barbra

I'm getting less convinced myself. A phosphorescent glow would die at the same rate in daylight as it would in the dark I imagine (due to heat at room temp.). This material is strongly effected by light alone and less by heat at room temp. Maybe best to leave it as is for now until we have more reliable data. --Doos 13:16, 22 January 2007 (PST)
