Methoxy-substituted benzoquinone contents of eight wood samples collected from trees grown in Hungary were studied by a modified RP-HPLC method. Three samples (Fraxinus excelsior, Fagus silvatica and Salix alba) did not contain 2,6-dimethoxy-p-benzoquinone (2,6-DMBQ). Other samples (Ailanthus altissima, Almus glutinosa, Quercus robur, Populus balsamifera, Robinia pseudoacacia) contained 0.02-0.3 mg/100 g of 2,6-DMBQ.
