PHOTOCHEMICAL REACTIONS OF DIBROMOTHYMOQUINONE: STRUCTURE AND INHIBITORY PROPERTIES OF THE PHOTOPRODUCT

Published

Journal Article

Abstract— The chemical structure of the major product that resulted from illumination of ethanolic solutions of dibromothymoquinone was deduced using 13C‐and 1H‐nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. The photoproduct is 2,5‐dibromo‐3‐allyl‐6‐methyl‐p‐dihydrobenzoquinone. The inhibition of photosynthetic electron transport by the photoreduced compound was found to be roughly equivalent to inhibition by nonirradiated dibromothymoquinone.
