Three hydroquinone dimethyl ether derivatives have been synthesized and characterized by X-ray diffraction. The electron donating properties were evaluated by using UV-vis spectroscopy, cyclic voltammetry and by ESR spectroscopy. The microcrystalline cation-radical salts of the three donor molecules were also isolated by using antimony pentachloride, a single electron Lewis acid oxidant.
