Explain metamerism and tautomerism.

Asked by pb_ckt 11th February 2019, 10:45 PM
Answered by Expert
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.
