Applications

2,3-Dichloro-5,6-dicyano-1,4-benzoquinone is used as a reagent for oxidative couplings and cyclization reactions and dehydrogenation of alcohols, phenols and steroid ketones. It is also used in the synthesis of 1,2-benzisoxazoles. It is a useful electron-transfer reagent for synthesis of quinolines from imines and alkynes or alkenes.

Notes

Store in a cool place. Incompatible with strong acids, strong bases, strong oxidizing agents and strong reducing agents.
