The 13C chemical shifts of 1,2,4-triazole, tetrazole, indazole, benzimidazole, and benzotriazole have been obtained from solid samples using the CP-MAS technique. They are discussed in connection with the annular prototropic tautomerism of these azoles and benzazoles. A case of functional tautmerism, that of benzoxazolidin-2-thione, and a case of non-prototropic tautmerism, that of 1-trimethylsilylbenzimidazole, are also studied.
