In two consecutive studies the tautomerism in 4-((2-hydroxynaphthalen-1-yl)diazenyl)-3,5-dinitrobenzoic acid and the structurally similar 1-((2-nitrophenyl)diazenyl)naphthalen-2-ol has been considered from viewpoint of theoretical chemistry, UV–Vis spectroscopy and NMR. Although the theoretical data (at M062X level) show that both compounds exist only as a keto tautomer, the experiment proves existence of the enol form. The difference in the results obtained by UV–Vis spectroscopy and NMR requires a deeper consideration and verification of the NMR approach, which is based on using model compounds to provide the NMR signal pattern of individual tautomers.
