A rapid, convenient and reliable procedure to obtain a variety of p-quinols via microwave-assisted oxidation of the corresponding p-alkylphenols was developed. Unlike the conventional methods that require several hours, our approach provides the target compounds within 30 min.

Keywords: Microwave-assisted synthesis, oxidation of p-alkylphenols, p-quinols, lead(IV) acetate, estrogens, phenolic antioxidants
