The ortho-quinone methides (o-QMs) are potentially very important intermediates in organic and biochemistry. This work is a contribution to th e chemistry of the o-QMs. Different ways to produce o-QMs are explored. The focus in this work is on the photogeneration of the ortho- naphthaquinone methide isomers with possible sp ectroscopic and kinetic investigation for their hydration back to their synthetic precursors.
