Applications
Quinine is used in photochemistry as a common fluorescence standard and as a resolving agent for chiral acids. It is also useful for treating falciparum malaria, lupus, arthritis and vivax malaria. It acts as a flavor component in tonic water and bitter lemon. It is utilized as the chiral moiety for the ligands used in sharpless asymmetric dihydroxylation. Furthermore, it catalyzes the kinetic resolution of furanones.

Solubility
Soluble in alcohol, chloroform and diethyl ether. Slightly soluble in water and glycerol.

Notes
Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents.
