Abstract

Two protocols for the synthesis of methoxy‐2‐hydroxy‐1,4‐naphthoquinones were investigated in order to evaluate their behavior towards aldehydes under amine‐basic conditions. Both the nature of the quinone and aliphatic aldehyde contribute to the viability of this condensation as well as further transformations.
