Tautomeric equilibria in intramolecularly hydrogen bonded Schiff bases is studied on the basis of solution13C NMR chemical shifts. NMR spectroscopic data and comparison with two anils model compound, namely, salicylideneaniline (1A) and naphthalylidinequinoline (2A) were used to represent the enol (A) and the keto (H) forms. The13C NMR chemical shifts data of the novel series 4A (compounds, 4-12) were used together with the values13C chemical shifts data of compounds 1A and 2A to calculate the
