‘That is, regardless of the tautomeric form in which the molecule finds itself there is always conserved an aromatic core to which is attached a hydroxyl group peri to a carbonyl group.’

  • ‘Although the double bond in the 7-membered ring of hypocrellin B constrains it to exist in one conformational and tautomeric form, it appears that in the excited state this is not the case.’
