The differences between the intramolecular proton transfer in Mannich and Schiff bases are discussed. The tautomeric forms being in equilibrium in both types of molecules are seriously different. In Mannich bases there are in equilibrium the forms of phenols and phenolates. In Schiff bases each of tautomers is strongly influenced by resonance between zwitterionic and keto structures. Despite the common opinion that the proton transfer forms in compounds with internal π-electronic coupling are mainly keto forms it is shown in this work, that in Schiff bases the content of keto structure is slightly less than zwitterionic one. Almost equal participation of both forms leads to effective resonance between them and stabilization of intramolecular hydrogen bond in this way. View Full-Text
