(CH3)3CCHO will show tautomerism or not?

by (67.2k points)

Tautomerism is a special kind of functional isomerism in which the isomers exist in dynamic equilibrium with each other .It arises due to migration of hydrogen atom from one polyvalent atom to the other within the same molecule .The isomers thus obtained are called tautomers .

(CH3)3CCHO do not show tautomerism due to the absence of α hydrogen atom w.r.t carbonyl group
