Abstract

Strongly oxidizing p-quinones such as tetrachloro-1,4-benzoquinone and 2,3-dichloro-5,6-dicyano-1,4-benzoquinone undergo stepwise oxidative addition reactions with copper(I) chloride and bromide in pyridine resulting in copper(II) p-semiquinone and dinuclear copper(II) 1,4-benzenediolate pyridine complexes.
