Structure of Dunnione

Nature volume 162, page 178 (31 July 1948) | Download Citation



THE investigation of dunnione and its transformation products by Price and Robinson1 did not completely establish the structures of these compounds. The work was interrupted by the War ; but Dr. Price has recently suggested that the further examination of these substances be included in a programme of research on quinones which is proceeding in this Laboratory. As closely related work is being done in the United States, it seems desirable to give a brief preliminary report of the scope of the present investigations, and of the results already obtained.
