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.
