chemiluminescent detection

Paul, your question really puzzles me. The very first paper on the use of
chemiluminescence does describe the use of a Polaroid film for detection.
Why shouldn't a BW paper be the same? The real problem is, what are you going
to achieve using it? Is it because you think it is cheaper? In fact, a high 
speed negative film (e.g.Kodak T-max 1600 ISO) should be even better, but it 
is very unconvenient to develop it in total darkness. I never thought of 
using anything but the X-ray film, because it is developed in a processor, 
while an Ilford paper probably wouldn't be processed properly (in an X-ray 
film processor).
Did I understand your problem correctly?
Have a nice day.

P.S: A new Kodak Bio-Max (single sided) film is wonderful for the purpose!
