Synthesis of some new carbohydrate-containing thiouriedonaphtho-quinones


New alkyl, aryl, and glycosylthiouriedo derivatives of 2,3-diamino-1,4-naphthoquinone were synthesized via the reaction of isothiocyanates with 2,3-diamino-1,4-naphthoquinone. The new compounds were fully characterized through their physicochemical properties.
