The nucieophilic properties of amino group in the 2-position of the 1,4-naphthoquinone
in the reactions of alkylation, acylation, and also in interaction with sulfinyl chlorides and
sulfonyl chlorides in comparison with the nucieophilic properties of the amino groups in the 6-
and 7-position has been investigated. It was found that in the presence of an amino group in
the molecule of substituted 1,4-naphthoquinone there is a displacement of the electron density
in the direction of the 1,4-naphthoquinone ring with an appropriate charge change on the
carbon atoms in a certain position, thus the reactivity of the amino group in the alkylation
reaction is highest at the 7-th carbon atom, some the lower activity of the amino group in the 6-
th position and the lowest in the 2-position of the 1,4-naphthoquinone
