8-Hydroxyquinoline is used as an antiseptic and disinfectant. Its alcoholic solution is used in liquid bandages. It is used to prepare tris(8-hydroxyquinolinato)aluminum, which finds application as a component of organic light-emitting diodes (OLED's). It is also used as a reagent and as a stabilizer of hydrogen peroxide in a rocket fuel oxidizer. It is used as a chelating agent and used as a carrier for radio-indium for diagnostic purposes. Its halogenated derivatives are used as anti-infective agents and oral antiamebics.
