Anthracene is used as a source of dyestuffs and involved in the preparation of red dye alizarin. It is an organic semiconductor used as a scintillator for detectors of high energy photons, electrons and alfa particles. It is doped with polyvinyltoluene to prepare plastic scintillator. Further, it is used in the preparation of anthraquinone, wood preservatives, coating materials and pigments. In addition to this, it is used to prepare 1-hydroxyanthracene, 2-hydroxyanthracene and in 9,10-dihydroxyanthracene.

Solubility
