About Anthraquinone. Anthraquinone (a.k.a. Anthracenedione, Dioxoanthracene) is a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon and a quinoid compound. It crystallizes as a thin, light yellow to pale yellow needles but can also appear as crystals or powder. It is insoluble in water and soluble in hot organic solvents such as alcohol, ether and acetone. It is easily sublimed without decomposing, a property used in industrial purification. By 2005, the annual production capacity for anthraquinone worldwide was 34 million kilograms.
Chemical Formula. C14H8O2
Commercial Grades. sublimed; 30% paste (sold on 100% basis); and electrical (99.5%).
Uses. Anthraquinone is mainly employed as bird repellent, wood pulping reagent and intermediate for dyes and organics.
- Anthracene (gas-phase oxidation)
- Anthracene + sodium dichromate + sulfuric acid (chromate oxidation)
- o-Benzoylbenzoic acid (acid-catalyzed condensation)
- Anthracene + nitric acid (nitric acid oxidation process)
- Naphthoquinone + butadiene (Kawasaki process)
- Benzene + phthalic anhydride + aluminum chloride (Friedel-Crafts reaction)
Derivatives. anthrone; aminoanthraquinone; benzanthrone; alizarin; kermes; cochineal; and lac dye.
