anthraquinone

 [an″thrah-kwin´ōn]
1. a derivative of anthracene, used in dye manufacture.
2. any of the usually highly colored derivatives of this compound which may be yellow, orange, red, red-brown, or violet; they occur in aloe, cascara sagrada, senna, and rhubarb and have cathartic properties.

When caged sparrows were provided with the maize seeds treated, a non-significant difference was observed with different concentrations (C) of anthraquinone and methylanthranilate, which showed that all concentrations are equally effective to repel the sparrows to consume maize seeds, there also existed a non-significant difference between the interaction of concentrations and treatment and between chemicals and concentrations (Table 1).
