The literature on the occurence and reactions of quinone structures in mechanical pulps has been reviewed. A study on the reactions of a quinone model compound (4-t-butyl-1,2-benzoquinone) in alkaline hydrogen peroxide has been reported, with detailed analysis of reaction products and kinetic phenomena. The study reveals that the diversity of products formed is much more complex than that obtained using an α,βunsaturated aldehyde as a model, a simple second-order expression can be used to describe the kinetics. The kinetics representing chromophore removal for the two classes of model compound are compared with previously reported studies of kinetic phenomena during bleaching of mechanical pulps.
