According to the literature survey, the X-ray single crystal study and computational studies related to geometry, electronic properties such as NBO, FMO, and MEP on these tautomeric compounds have not been explored yet.
The actual tautomeric structure of the coupling products 21A-C was studied and confirmed based on computational data extracted.
In the 6,8-diketo tautomeric form of [o.sup.8]G [274], the N7 is a hydrogen donor, instead of acceptor, and therefore only a single H-bonding pattern remains when [o.sup.8]G is present in the tetrad.
