Abstract

YouTubes: Hydroquinone plays a key role in a number of chemical and biological processes. Nanographite impurities that are present within carbon nanotubes are responsible for the "electrocatalytic" oxidation of this biologically important compound. Hydroquinone is also part of skin whiteners, used in Asian countries (see picture).
