Convenient access to hydroquinone and quinone derivatives from cyclobutenedione units
An important synthetic method providing access to a variety of heterocyclic and polycyclic quinones and hydroquinones is described. The key transformation involves the thermal ring expansion of cyclobutenedione derivatives to quinone/hydroquinone units. The synthetic utility and recent applications of this method in natural product synthesis are also discussed.
