Abstract

Reaction of 1,4-naphthoquinone or 2,3-dichloro-1,4-naphthoquinone with α,ω-diamino-derivatives of poly(alkylenoxides) leads to the formation of α,ω-bis(quinonyl) amines. A similar reaction with chloranil, bromanil, dichlorodicyanobenzoquinone, S-phenylbenzoquinone and 1,4-benzoquinone itself, leads to the formation of quinoid crown ethers.
