General description

Anthracene, a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon, is an important moiety in supramolecular chemistry due to its size and shape and photophysical properties. Its closed-shelled Huckel aromatic structure, fluorescence property, well-resolved absorption and emission bands, high fluorescence quantum yield and nanosecond lifetime makes it an ideal organic fluorophore.

Application

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