Abstract

Mercaptoacetylhydrazones of methyl alkyl ketones (Alk = Me, Et, Pr, i-Pr, i-Bu, s-Bu, t-Bu) exist in solutions as a tautomeric mixture of linear and cyclic 1,3,4-thiadiazine forms.The linear hydrazone form exists as a set of conformers caused by restricted rotation of the amide group relative to the C–N bond. It is shown that tautomeric equilibrium constants correlate with the steric constants of the alkyl substituents, ES.
