Use as the intermediate of synthetic dyes. Use anthraquinone reductive dyes and dispersal dyes and acid dyes and intermediates. Itself to disperse dyestuffs purple. 1,4-Diaminoanthraquinone oxidized with different metal atoms gives rise to conducting coordination polymers consisting of difunctional ligand molecules linked by metal atoms. 1, 4-diaminoanthraquinone has solar cell applications. A hybrid Si/poly (1, 4-diaminoanthraquinone) photoconductive diode for optical sensor applications. Acts as the sequential incorporation of the mediator in electrochemical sensing of glucose on a gold electrode.
