if not.....then would it still work in the benzo-wacker process?

Theres nothing to be afraid of, just concentrate, and trust the music.

Its the stuff they sell at photochem supply. I know chemical grade benzo is yellow while quinone is more pee-green, probably a mix of benzo and hydroquinone. I wonder if adding more than the 150 g in MM wacker results in higher yield?
