Abstract: Quinones having hydroxy groups directly attached to the quinone ring constitute a very interesting class of quinoid compounds. A great number of hydroxyquinones are found in nature and the majority of them exhibit unique biological activity. Their syntheses and their main reactivity patterns are reviewed in this paper.
