9,10-Phenanthrenequinon may be used for high quality passivation on silicon (100) surfaces. Quinones may serve as substrates for a variety of flavoenzymes, useful fluorescent compound and quinone. Also used in dyes, as a hardener for dental restoration, for the determination of copper by spectrophotometric method, and for organic synthesis.
