for tautomerism to occur , atleast one alpha hydrogen must be acidic??

what alpha hydrogen & acidic hydrogen means here & how multiple bond on cyclocompounds reduce acidic character of hydrogen???plzzz..explain.

acidic hydrogen means which attach with more electrondonating  group. always remember that sp hybridized carban  attach hydrogen is more acidic . in tauto merism atlist one alpha H atom is required for come out to hydrogen and  become enol content.alpha H means attach  alpha carben atom . if it is acidic or not always remove alpha H. mostly alpha H is acidic in tautomerism,

Which of the following names are correct as per IUPAC norms? 2,6,6-trimethyloctane 3,3,7-trimethyloctane Pent-4-en-2-yne Diethyl ether
3 and 4 are incorrect. But in case of 1& 2, 1 is given correct in a book reasoning first locant (here methyl group) should get lowest number (3) whereas in 2 nd first locant gets 3 which is ...

Lowest locant rule is violated in compunds one and third,fourth is common name and not IUPAC name,hence second compound is the correct answer
Harihara Narayanan 8 months ago
The second compound would be the right answer as first one and the third violates the lowest sum rule and the last one is a common name.

Thanks for trying. I just want a major difference b/w nucleophile & a base except for that nucleophile attack on carbon & base on hydrogen.

Sir, bond angle is directly proportional to s character and therefore inversely proportio al to p character?
