The invention relates to a new type of highly polar, at least double-negatively charged redox-active benzoquinones, notably derived from Coenzyme Q0, Q1 and dimethoxy benzoquinones, its production and use. The production of these benzoquinones comprises the reaction of dimethoxy benzoquinones with highly alkaline aqueous solutions. The benzoquinones of the invention have various potential applications in pharmaceutical and cosmetic industry (namely as antioxidants, anti-ageing agents and the like), in organic synthesis, metal complexations, metal separations, potentiometric titrations, interfacial catalysis, and ion-transfer reactions across biological membranes.
