Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
stable and homogeneous in DMSO and in ethanol
Executive summary:

The stability of Chloranil (2,3,5,6-tetrachloro-1,4-benzoquinone) in DMSO and in ethanol was determined using UV-vis-spectrometry. Chloranil was stable and homogeneous for more than 72 hour in both solvents.
