    • Abstract


      The enolimine-ketoamine equilibria in a variety of alkyl and arylsalicylaldimines have been studied in 1,2-dichloroethane, methanol, ethanol,iso-propanol andt-butanol by electronic absorption spectroscopy. The equilibrium depends on the nature of the alcohol and the strength of hydrogen bond formed with the ketoamine. In arylsalicylaldimines, the equilibrium is sensitive to the nature of the substituents.
