Metal ion promoted tautomerization and C–N bond cleavage: conversion of catechol to a p-benzoquinone derivative

Author affiliations

Abstract

Metal ion promoted tautomerization of p-iminoquinone to o-diiminoquinone and a C–N bond cleavage of 2,5-bis(p-tolylamino)-4-p-tolyliminobenzoquinone leading to the conversion of catechol to a p-benzoquinone derivative are reported.
