Preliminary results are presented of a study of organic liquid-based scintillators. The objectives of the study were to identify materials that have good spectral characteristics the match state of the art solid state photosensors such as SiPM devices, high quantum efficiency, rapid fluorescence decay and good handling and safety characteristics. Potential applications for such materials are in high radiation environments in forward-calorimetry in colliding beam experiments and for active instrumentation in large volume applications, such as underground experiments.
