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.

The mutagenicity of various quinones, a class of compounds widely distributed in nature, is demonstrated in the Salmonella TA104 tester strain. The metabolic pathways by which four quinones, menadione, benzo[a]pyrene 3,6-quinone, 9,10-phenanthrenequinone, and danthron, caused mutagenicity in this test system...

With the use of the model complexes [(PQ)FeCl(CH(3)O)](+), [(phen)FeCl(CH(3)O)](+), and [(PQ)(phen)FeCl(CH(3)O)](+), where PQ is 9,10-phenanthraquinone and phen is 1,10-phenanthroline, the reactivity of phenanthraquinone in complexes with iron(III) is investigated. It is shown that 9,10-phenanthraquinone takes part in redox processes occurring...
