Explain metamerism and tautomerism.
Asked by pb_ckt | 11th Feb, 2019, 10:45: PM
Metamerism arises due to different alkyl chains on either side of the functional group in the molecule.
Tautomerisation reaction commonly results in the formal migration of a hydrogen atom or proton, accompanied by a switch of a single bond and adjacent double bond. The concept of tautomerisation is called tautomerism. Because of the rapid interconversion, tautomers are generally considered to be the same chemical compound. Tautomerism is a special case of structural isomerism.
