what about tautomerism?

Asked by nandhu os | 25th Dec, 2011, 12:00: AM

Expert Answer:

 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.
