Is there a compound with Chemiluminescent properties which is activated soley by physical movement and/or pressure rather than by oxidisation?

Mod edit - I've changed the subject of your post to be formatted as a question - please do this in future to help keep the forum tidy and easy to navigate.  Thanks!

I think you are looking for mechanoluminescence: i.e. piezoluminescence, fractoluminescence or triboluminescence rather than chemiluminescence.
