enol

 [e´nol]
an organic compound in which one carbon of a double-bonded pair is also attached to a hydroxyl group, thus a tautomer of the ketone form. The term is also used as a prefix or infix, often italicized.

e·nol

(ē'nol),
A compound possessing a hydroxyl group (alcohol) attached to a doubly bonded (ethylenic) carbon atom (-CH=CH(OH)-); properly italicized when attached as a prefix or infix to an otherwise complete name, for example, enolpyruvate, phosphoenolpyruvate; usually in equilibrium with its keto tautomer.
[-ene + -ol]
