2,6-Dihydroxynaphthalene is used in the preparation of 1,5-dichloro-2,6-diethynylnaphthalenes. It is used to produce convulsions in mice. It exhibits antiproliferative activity towards certain cells. It is also employed in the preparation of the first-generation rotaxane dendrimer. Further, it is used in the production of several dyes, pigments, fluorescent whiteners, tanning agents, antioxidants and antiseptics. In addition to this, it is converted into amines, esters, ethers and carboxylic derivatives.
