MARTINEZ, Sabrina T. et al. Addition of amines to naphthoquinone in water and solid phase. Quím. Nova [online]. 2012, vol.35, n.4, pp. 858-860. ISSN 0100-4042. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-40422012000400037.
Considering all the aspects of the principles of green chemistry, we present herein the addition reactions of amines to 1,4-naphthoquinone in water as solvent and also in solid phase. These reactions resulted in very colorful products that were easily monitored by thin layer chromatography and consequently easy to separate. Therefore, they are interesting experiments for experimental organic chemistry in the classrooms or in the laboratories.
