This paper discusses the figures of merit associated with the synchronous luminescence (SL) technique in multicomponent analysis of complex samples. Spectral interferences and experimental factors that influence the choice of experimental conditions are investigated. The efficacy of SL is demonstrated in the direct determination of anthracene and 2-methylanthracene in a raw coal liquid. The application of the second-derivative technique to the SL measurement of organic samples is shown. Special emphasis is directed toward the applicability of the SL technique as a practical and cost-effective screening procedure in the routine analysis of complex organic samples.
