Preparation of methoxy-substituted para-benzoquinones
Published: 01 November 2016 by MDPI in The 20th International Electronic Conference on Synthetic Organic Chemistry session General Organic Synthesis
Abstract: A facile route to 5-substituted 2-methoxy-para-benzoquinones from 5-substituted 2-methoxyphenols is described. Spectral data of the compounds is discussed. The cyclovoltammographic behaviour of some of the 2-methoxy-parabenzoquinones is shown. The synthetic route is also used to prepare steroid-methoxy-para-benzoquinone hybrids.
Keywords: para-benzoquinones, UV spectroscoy, steroid-quinone hybrids
