Oxyphenolate complexes of niobium are insoluble in chloroform, while mixed-ligand complexes with hydrophobic amines and aminophenols easily dissolve in various organic solvents [10, 11].
Damages caused by aminophenols are related to fast oxidation of these compounds in physiological conditions to benzosemiquinoimines that are finally transformed to p-benzoquinoimines.

Aminophenols are interesting electrochemical materials (6-11) since, unlike aniline (12) and other substituted anilines (13), they present two oxidizable groups (N[H.sub.2] and OH) providing more reactive sites.
