Thepreparation methodof modified chitosan films for adsorption of pyrene from solution is described. Solid-phase luminescence of samples was studied, degree of extraction and index of polarity of microenvironment of pyrene molecules was determined. It has been proven possible to carry out luminescent analysis of substances for pyrene content using made films. The observed results demonstrate an ability for the using method of solid-phase luminescence (SPL) to increase the range of optical transparency and avoid pre-extraction and concentration of the test samples.
