After purification and recrystallization, hydroquinone generally appears as an off-white powder, or as fine, white, crystalline needles, that are freely soluble in warm water or alcohol. An organic compound that naturally occurs in some plants, hydroquinone can also be formed by chemically reducing benzoquinone.
