Abstract. An experimental protocol is described that allows preparation of blattellaquinone in higher yield and purity than those obtained by a procedure previously published. A variation on this protocol allows the target molecule to be prepared in a single lab session. Advanced topics that could be addressed by further investigation of this experiment have also been noted.
