Abstract

Alkyl monoesters of hydroquinone and pyrocatechol have not hitherto been prepared. Hydroquinone monoacetate has been obtained by the following series of reactions. Hydroquinone plus one molar equivalent of carbobenzoxy chloride gives hydroquinone monobenzyl carbonate. This compound is acetylated, and then hydrogenated in alcohol with Pd or Ni catalyst. Hydroquinone monoacetate, plates or needles from petroleum ether, M. P. 57- 59oC., is obtained from the residue.
