Barrierless inter and intramolecular proton transfer; a DFT study of tautomerism in microsolvated and protonated systems.


DFT calculations were employed to study tautomers of 2,2-di(pyrimidin-2-yl)acetic acid (DPA) in the gas phase and in the presence of water, methanol, DMSO (microsolvation models), and proton (H(+)). In the gas phase, all three tautomers were in equilibrium with each other (T2 was slightly more favorable); but, in microsolvation with protic solvent, T3 was a… (More)
