  • Naphthoquinones are secondary metabolites isolated from different plant, bacterial, fungal and animal sources; traditionally these compounds are used for their dyeing properties, however, actually different biological activities of these compounds have been reported. In most cases, these activities are due to its ability to accept one or two electrons to form the corresponding anion or di-anion radical, which can be modulated synthetically by modifying the substituents attached to the 1,4… CONTINUE READING
