1,8-Dihydroxyanthraquinone Chemical Properties,Uses,Production

Chemical Properties

orange-brown or brown powder

Chemical Properties

Red-orange to orange crystalline powder or reddish-brown crystalline solid.


Important intermediate in the manufacture of alizarin and indanthrene dyestuffs; forms insoluble Ca, Ba, Pb lakes. Antioxidant in synthetic lubricants; fungicide.


Used as a stimulant laxative, though due to its carcinogenic properties, is not widely prescribed.




ChEBI: A dihydroxyanthraquinone that is anthracene-9,10-dione substituted by hydroxy groups at positions 1 and 8.

brand name

Dorbane (3M Pharmaceuticals); Istizin (Sterling Winthrop);Doss;Normax;Regulex-d.

World Health Organization (WHO)

Dantron, an anthroquinone derivative, has been available for over twenty years and is widely used as a laxative. The results of two chronic toxicity studies in rodents, published in 1985 and 1986, have shown that administration of high doses is associated with the development of intestinal and liver tumours.

General Description

Orange crystalline powder. Almost odorless and tasteless.

Air & Water Reactions

Insoluble in water.

Reactivity Profile

1,8-Dihydroxyanthraquinone is incompatible with strong reducing substances such as hydrides, nitrides, alkali metals, and sulfides.

Fire Hazard

Flash point data for 1,8-Dihydroxyanthraquinone are not available; however, 1,8-Dihydroxyanthraquinone is probably combustible.

Safety Profile

Confirmed carcinogen with experimental carcinogenic data. Moderately toxic by intraperitoneal route. An eye irritant. Questionable carcinogen with experimental carcinogenic and neoplastigenic data. Human mutation data reported. A laxative. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes.

Potential Exposure

A potential liver carcinogen and possible narcotic, this compound is no longer sold or marketed in the United States Nervous system toxin-acute effects; Respiratory toxin-acute effects other than severe or moderate irritation; Liver-acute effects; Eye irritant-mild.

First aid

Move victim to fresh air. Call 911 or emergency medical service. Give artificial respiration if victim is not breathing. Do not use mouth-to-mouth method if victim ingested or inhaled the substance; give artificial respiration with the aid of a pocket mask equipped with a one-way valve or other proper respira- tory medical device. Administer oxygen if breathing is difficult. Remove and isolate contaminated clothing and shoes. In case of contact with substance, immediately flushskinoreyeswithrunningwaterforatleast20min- utes. For minor skin contact, avoid spreading material on unaffected skin. Keep victim warm and quiet. Effects of exposure (inhalation, ingestion, or skin contact) to substance may be delayed. Ensure that medical personnel are aware of the material(s) involved and take pre- cautions to protect themselves. Medical observation is recommended for 24 to 48 hours after breathing overex- posure, as pulmonary edema may be delayed. As first aid forpulmonaryedema,adoctororauthorizedparamedic may consider administering a drug or other inhalation therapy.


UN2811 Toxic solids, organic, n.o.s., Hazard Class: 6.1; Labels: 6.1-Poisonous materials, Technical Name Required.

Purification Methods

Crystallise Danthrone from EtOH and sublime it in a vacuum. [Beilstein 8 IV 3217.]


Keep away from strong reducing agents, such as hydrides, nitrides, alkali metals, and sulfides.

Waste Disposal

It is inappropriate and possibly dangerous to the environment to dispose of expired or waste drugs and pharmaceuticals by flushing them down the toilet or discarding them to the trash. Household quantities of expired or waste pharmaceuticals may be mixed with wet cat litter or coffee grounds, double- bagged in plastic, discard in trash. Larger quantities shall carefully take into consideration applicable DEA, EPA, and FDA regulations. If possible return the pharmaceutical to the manufacturer for proper disposal being careful to prop- erly label and securely package the material. Alternatively, the waste pharmaceutical shall be labeled, securely packaged and transported by a state licensed medical waste contractor to dispose by burial in a licensed hazardous or toxic waste landfill or incinerator.
