Benzylamines react at the 4-position with aromatization of the quinone ring. The resulting imines can be oxidized, in the presence of oxygen and base, to the corresponding benzamides, thus providing an amine to amide conversion, an otherwise difficult transformation: J. Chem. Soc., Chem. Commun., 970 (1979).
