It is commonly believed that the emissive excited state in the bio-, chemiluminescence, and fluorescence phenomena is the same, although from a mechanistic viewpoint, these processes might differ. To solve this dilemma in the Firefly oxyluciferin, we study by means of ab initio quantum chemistry and hybrid quantum chemistry/molecular mechanics methods the emission process in the three luminescent phenomena.
