Abstract

Solid-state electronic absorption, fluorescence emission and C-13 CPMAS spectroscopies have been applied to a series of aromatic Schiff bases displaying both ground and excited state intramolecular proton transfer phenomena. All the results can be explained on the basis of a thermal equilibrium between enolimine and keto-enamine tautomeric forms in the crystalline state. Most of the studied compounds are thermochromic. However, a few are photochromic. The carbon-13 NMR data in the solid state show, in general, residual (C-13,N-14) dipolar coupling effects. In certain cases, however, where fast proton transfer occurs in the ground state, these effects are shown to be self-decoupled.
