Hydroxyquinol is a benzenetriol.

It is a catechin biodegradation product formed by Bradyrhizobium japonicum.[1]

Hydroxyquinol 1,2-dioxygenase is an enzyme that uses hydroxyquinol and O2 to produce 3-hydroxy-cis,cis-muconate.

Hydroxyquinol can be produced from the action of potassium hydroxide on hydroquinone.[2]
