an·thra·cene

 (ăn′thrə-sēn′)
n.
A crystalline aromatic hydrocarbon, C14H10, extracted from coal tar and used in the manufacture of dyes and organic chemicals.

[Greek anthrax, anthrak-, charcoal + -ene.]

anthracene

(ˈænθrəˌsiːn)
n
(Elements & Compounds) a colourless tricyclic crystalline solid having a slight blue fluorescence, used in the manufacture of chemicals, esp diphenylamine and alizarin, and as crystals in scintillation counters. Formula: C6H4(CH)2C6H4
[C19: from anthrax + -ene]

an•thra•cene

(ˈæn θrəˌsin)

n.
a colorless, crystalline powder, C14H10, obtained from coal tar, used chiefly as a source of anthraquinone and alizarin.
[1860–65; < Greek ánthrax coal + -ene]

Upon application of UV light, anthracene derivatives can photodimerize into a number of structures, with resulting applications in shape memory [48], self-healing [49], and the study of mechanochemical activation [50-54], Anthracene has a much higher absolute fluorescence quantum yield compared with other mechanophores, due to its large conjugated system, and thus it is a desirable candidate for mechanochemical signaling via fluorescence generation [55].

EXPRESSION OF A 70kDA PROTEIN DURING THE DEGRADATION OF DIESEL FUEL AND ANTHRACENE BY Pseudomonas luteola
Meanwhile, monitors ringing the pilot dredge site had only turned up a single over-the-threshold reading, for the chemical anthracene, which the National Institute of Health said was a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon that was a component of coal tar.
The basic raw material used for the synthesis of these dyes is benzene, phenol, toluene, aniline, xylene, anthracene, and naphthalene.
The aromatic organic compounds such as toluene, ethylbenzene, xylenes, alkyl derivatives of benzene with hydrocarbon chains of various lengths, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons such as naphthalene, biphenyl, phenanthrene, anthracene, fuoranthene, pyrene, and their methyl-, dimethyl-, and trimethyl- derivatives were found in the extract of the milled brake pad.

Hydrocarbon degrading bacteria were isolated from the petrol contaminated soil of Karachi to determine their biodegradation capabilities of aromatic hydrocarbons such as xylene, phenanthrene, naphthalene, biphenyl and anthracene.
As shown in Figure 1, 36 key PAHs are analyzed in just 32 minutes and all priority compounds--including benz [a] anthracene, chrysene, benzo[b]fluoranthene, benzo[a]pyrene, chrysene, triphenylene, cyclopenta[cd]pyrene, and benzo [b], [k], [j], and [a] fluoranthenes--are well resolved allowing accurate integration.
There are only 10 PAHs compounds found in present study which included Dibenzo (a, h) Anthracene, Benzo (a) Pyrene, Benzo (k) Fluoranthene, Fluoranthene, Chrysene, Phenanthrene, Acenaphylene, Ideno (1,2,3cd) Pyrene, Benzo (g, h, i) Perylene and Benzo (a) Anthracene.
Lanthanum oxide nanoparticles have been used in the production of the hybrid materials due to their high dielectric constant while anthracene was used due to its very cheap price and good availability.
