    I'll try to answer those questions. But I need someone to check for me.

    1) anthracene<resorcinol< 4-amino-1-naphthalenesulfonic acid< benzoic acid< sodium salt

    2) water soluble: sodium salt, benzoic acid

    Toulene soluble: antharcene, 4- amino-1-naphthalenesulfonic acid

    Ligroin soluble: resorcinol
