Application

Anthracene has been shown to be soluble in a variety of binary and ternary mixtures of cyclohexanone, ethyl acetate, and methanol 1,2.

Anthracene was used to study the photodimerization reaction of anthracene in supercritical CO2.

General description

Anthracene derivatives are useful in preparing stable blue-emitting organic electroluminescence devices3. It is oxidized to anthracene cis-1,2-dihydrodiol by Mycobacterium sp. strain PYR-124. It forms bis-adducts by [4+2]-cycloaddition reaction with [5,6]-fullerene C605.
