Dear Hemanth


This is a special case of functional isomerism. Certain substances can

exhibit properties of two functional groups as for instance, acetoacetic ester behaves like a ketone as well as an alcohol. This arises due to the migration of a labile hydrogen atom from one place to another.In acetoacetic ester, the inter-conversion between keto and enolic group takes place as follows.


inter-conversion between keto and enolic group


In amides, it happens as follows:


keto-enol tautomerisn in amides


Both these forms of the same molecule exist in equilibrium in a sample of compound. The migration of a labile hydrogen between two polyvalent atoms in the same molecule causes this type of dynamic isomerism. This is termed as tautomerism or keto-enol tautomerisn. Such isomers are termed as tautomers.


Please feel free to post as many doubts on our discussion forum as you can.we will get you the answer and detailed  solution very  quickly.

All the best.
