Facile access to amidoethyl-p-benzoquinones
Published: 30 October 2015 by MDPI in The 19th International Electronic Conference on Synthetic Organic Chemistry session General Organic Synthesis
Abstract: Amidoethyl-p-benzoquinones are easily accessible from 2,5-dimethoxybenzaldehyde. A one-step Wittig-hydrolysis reaction is followed by an amidation of the produced 2,5-dimethoxycinnamic acid. Hydrogenation and oxidative demethylation complete the sequence to the respective amidoethyl-p-benzoquinones. The spectroscopic data of the products is discussed.
Keywords: p-benzoquinones, oxidative demethylation, amides
