Anthraquinone Chemical Properties,Uses,Production

Chemical Properties

dull yellow powder

Chemical Properties

Anthraquinone is a combustible, light yellow to green crystalline solid.


bird repellant, irritant


A precursor for dye formation


Starting material for the manufacture of dyes; bird repellent.


ChEBI: An anthraquinone that is anthracene in which positions 9 and 10 have been oxidised to carbonyls.

General Description

Yellow crystals or powder.

Air & Water Reactions

Insoluble in water.

Reactivity Profile

Anthraquinone is incompatible with strong oxidizing agents.


Possible carcinogen.

Fire Hazard

Anthraquinone is combustible.

Agricultural Uses

Repellent, Seed treatment: Used as a seed dressing or protectant. Banned in EU.

Trade name


Safety Profile

Moderately toxic by intraperitoneal route. A mild allergen. Mutation data reported. Combustible when exposed to heat or flame. To fight fire, use water, foam, CO2, water spray or mist, dry chemical. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes.

Potential Exposure

Anthraquinone is an important starting material for vat dye manufacture. Also used in making organics; and used as a bird repellent in seeds.

First aid

If this chemical gets into the eyes, remove any contact lenses at once and irrigate immediately for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting upper and lower lids. Seek medical attention immediately. If this chemical contacts the skin, remove contaminated clothing and wash immediately with soap and water. Seek medical attention immediately. If this chemical has been inhaled, remove from exposure, begin rescue breathing (using universal precautions, including resuscitation mask) if breathing has stopped and CPR if heart action has stopped. Transfer promptly to a medical facility. When this chemical has been swallowed, get medical attention. Give large quantities of water and induce vomiting. Do not make an unconscious person vomit.


UN3143 Dyes, solid, toxic, n.o.s. or Dye intermediates, solid, toxic, n.o.s., Hazard Class: 6.1; Labels: 6.1-Poisonous materials, Technical Name Required.

Purification Methods

Crystallise anthraquinone from CHCl3 (38mL/g), *benzene, or boiling acetic acid, wash it with a little EtOH and dry it under vacuum over P2O5. [Beilstein 7 IV 2556.]


Incompatible with oxidizers (chlorates, nitrates, peroxides, permanganates, perchlorates, chlorine, bromine, fluorine, etc.); contact may cause fires or explosions. Keep away from alkaline materials, strong bases, strong acids, oxoacids, epoxides

Waste Disposal

Dissolve or mix the material with a combustible solvent and burn in a chemical incinerator equipped with an afterburner and scrubber. All federal, state, and local environmental regulations must be observed.
