Description

Packaging

1, 25, 100 g in poly bottle

Application

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

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 devices. It is oxidized to anthracene cis-1,2-dihydrodiol by Mycobacterium sp. strain PYR-12. It forms bis-adducts by [4+2]-cycloaddition reaction with [5,6]-fullerene C60.
