Draw the structural formulae of a-hydroxyketone and a-hydroxyaldehyde showing keto-enol tautomersim as follows: Concept Introduction: Tautomer is the constitutional isomer that differ in the location of a hydrogen atom and a double a double bond. A carboxyl compound that has a hydrogen on a-carbon is in equilibrium with its enol isomer as follows: Keto-enol isomers are differing in the location of a hydrogen and a double bond. This type of isomerism is called keto-enol tautomerism.
