    • Abstract


      Anthraquinone, an oxidation product of anthracene, has been grown by gel aided solution technique employing sodium metasilicate. Needle shaped crystals were obtained in 0–5% (w/v) solution of anthraquinone for pH 5-5. The grown crystals were characterized by optical microscopy, SEM, IR, UV and XRD.
