2-(2-Chloromethyloxazol-5-yl)-3,5,6-trimethyl-1,4-benzoquinone, the first compound of a new quinone-heterocyclic class of bioreductive alkylating agent, was prepared from trimethylhydroquinone in 8 steps and reacted by SRN1 reaction with lithium salt of 2-nitropropane. The C-alkylation derivative showing its ability to react as one electron bioreductive alkylating agent was obtained in 88% yield.
