General description

The quinones of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons are present in abundance in all burnt organic material. On being used to passivate silicon surfaces, it reacts with the dangling bonds on the surface via a heteroatomic Diels-Alder reaction. On account of the Π-electron conjugation, the semi conducting nature of the silicon is unaffected.

Application

9,10-Phenanthrenequinon may be used for high quality passivation on silicon (100) surfaces. Quinones may serve as substrates for a variety of flavoenzymes.

9,10-Phenanthraquinone (PQ), a component of airborne particulate matter, causes marked cellular protein oxidation and cytotoxicity through a two-electron reduction to 9,10-dihydroxyphenanthrene (PQH2), which is associated with the propagation of reactive oxygen species (K.

9,10-Phenanthrenequinone (9,10-PQ), a redox-active quinone in diesel exhausts, triggers cellular apoptosis via reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation in its redox cycling. This study found that induction of CCAAT/enhancer-binding protein-homologous protein (CHOP), a pro-apoptotic factor derived from endoplasmic reticulum stress, participates

9,10-Phenanthrenequinone (9,10-PQ), a major quinone in diesel exhaust particles, induces apoptosis via the generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) because of 9,10-PQ redox cycling. We have found that intratracheal infusion of 9,10-PQ facilitates the secretion of surfactant into rat alveolus.
