The barrier to the rotation about the C-C bond linking the two heterocycles of 2-(4’-pyridyl)benzazoles and of their pyridinium salts is too low to be measured by proton nmr spectroscopy at 60 MHz. A slowing down of the proton exchange between the two benzimidazole nitrogen atoms has been shown to occur. The conformation of the different molecules is discussed.
