|Title:||The Autooxidation Of 2,3,5,6-tetrahydroxy-2,5-cyclohexadiene-1,4-dione Under Physiological Conditions|
|Abstract:||A radical anion of 2,3,5,6-tetrahydroxy-2,5-cyclohexadiene-1,4-dione was detected using the EPR technique by complexing with Zn ions. Hydrogen peroxide, superoxide radical anion and hydroxyl radical were also detected in the reaction mixture. Kinetic study and product distribution indicated a probable mixed type one- and two-electron transfer mechanism. A possible relationship between the autooxidation process and the biological activity of substituted quinones was suggested.|
