Conclusions

  1. 1.

    We studied the photochemical transformations of some 2,6-disubstituted 1,4-benzoquinones in aliphatic alcohols, acetic acid, and aromatic hydrocarbons.

     
  2. 2.

    In aliphatic alcohols the photolysis of the quinones leads to the formation of only reduction products, whereas in acetic acid and aromatic hydrocarbons the nature of the substituents exerts a substantial effect on the structure of the end reaction products.
