Abstract

2,5-Dihydroxybenzoquinones, when heated in water, react to form different types of compounds through dimerization. The features of this unique reaction were clarified using a model compound, 2,5-dihydroxy-3- methyl-benzoquinone. The structures of the products were established by X- ray analysis and spectroscopic means.
