The 15N coupling constants to 13C and to 1H are reported for 2-hydroxymethyl-5-methoxy-1-phenyl-4-pyridone (1). The one-bond 15N-13C coupling constants are consistent with sp2 hybridized nitrogen. The 13C chemical shifts do not change much on protonation, but the 15N chemical shift undergoes a large change. The nmr data are discussed with regard to the question of the aromaticity of 4-pyridones. An improved synthesis of 1 is reported.
