1,2-Dioxin is a heterocyclic, organic, antiaromatic compound with the chemical formula C4H4O2. It is an isomeric form of 1,4-dioxin (or p-dioxin).

Due to its peroxide-like characteristics, 1,2-dioxin is very unstable and has not been isolated. Even substituted derivatives are very labile, e.g. 1,4-diphenyl-2,3-benzodioxin.[2] Indeed, in 1990, 3,6-bis(p-tolyl)-1,2-dioxin was wrongly accounted as the first stable derivative.[3] It was subsequently shown that the initial compound was not a derivative of 1,2-dioxin, but a thermodynamically more stable dione.[4]
