What Is Tautomer And Tautomerization


A tautomer is basically a different type isomer by an organic compound that has the characteristic that it can rapidly change their isomeric form by the simple chemical reaction, that process called tautomerization. Typically, this happens as the transfer of hydrogen atoms (protons) by an interchange of one single bond with a double bond. In a public solution where tautomerism is possible, a chemical equilibrium between the two tautomers is must be obtained otherwise the process should not proceed forward.
