The keto-enol tautomerism of α-carbonylcyclododecanones has been studied by means of 1H NMR technology. The result shows that the effects of substituent, temperature and solvent on the tautomerism agreed with the known rules, while their enol contents were much lower than those of the corresponding α-carbonylcyclohexanones, which is illustrated reasonably by the conformational effect.
