MCQ (Single Correct Answer)

NEET 2013

The order of stability of the following tautomeric compounds is

A
II > I > III
B
II > III > I
C
I > II > III
D
III > II > I

Explanation

Enolic form predominates in compounds containing two carbonyl groups separated by a –CH2 group. This is due to following two factors.

(i) Presence of conjugation which increases stability.

(ii) Formation of intramolecular hydrogen bond between enolic hydroxyl group and second carbonyl group which leads to stablisation of the molecule.

Hence the correct answer is III > II > I
