Applications
Cytotoxic compound that causes oxidative base damage to nuclear DNAAlloxan monohydrate is used as a precursor to prepare purple dye murexide. It is also used in research models to induce diabetes and destroy beta cells. Further, it is a strong oxidizing agent and it forms a hemiacetal with its reduced reaction product dialuric acid.

Solubility
Soluble in water, ethanol, acetone, glacial acetic acid and methanol. Slightly soluble in chloroform, petroleum ether, toluene, ethyl acetate and acetic anhydride. Insoluble in ether.

Notes
Air sensitive. Store in a cool place. Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents.
