Abstract:Quantum quasigroups and loops are self-dual objects that provide a~ general framework for the nonassociative extension of quantum group techniques. They also have one-sided analogues, which are not self-dual. In this paper, natural quantum versions of idempotence and distributivity are specified for these and related structures. Quantum distributive structures furnish solutions to the quantum Yang-Baxter equation.
