Due to their diverse biological activity and importance as natural products, quinones and their derivatives have attracted constant interest in terms of synthetic organic photochemistry, as can be seen by a number of summarizing reviews. Among the broad variety of applications, the photochemical reaction between a quinone and an aldehyde has been intensively studied over the past 100 years. This review provides an overview of the photoacylation of quinones from the discovery by Heinrich Klinger in 1888 to modern solar chemical applications by Mattay and co-workers. To account for the historical development of the photochemical techniques and consequently this application, selected synthetic key-features (e.g., radiation source, solvents applied) are summarized in tables for many of the reported examples.
