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 .

Lot and Batch Numbers can be found on a product's label following the words 'Lot' or 'Batch'.

Aldrich Products

  • For a lot number such as TO09019TO, enter it as 09019TO (without the first two letters 'TO').

  • For a lot number with a filling-code such as 05427ES-021, enter it as 05427ES (without the filling-code '-021').

  • For a lot number with a filling-code such as STBB0728K9, enter it as STBB0728 without the filling-code 'K9'.

Not Finding What You Are Looking For?

In some cases, a COA may not be available online. If your search was unable to find the COA you can request one.
