  1. isomerisation

    In chemistry, isomerization or isomerisation is the process in which a molecule, polyatomic ion or molecular fragment is transformed into an isomer with a different chemical structure. Enolization is an example of isomerization, as is tautomerization. When the isomerization occurs intramolecularly it may be called a rearrangement reaction.When the activation energy for the isomerization reaction is sufficiently small, both isomers will exist in a temperature-dependent equilibrium with each other. Many values of the standard free energy difference, Δ G ∘ {\displaystyle \Delta G^{\circ }} , have been calculated, with good agreement between observed and calculated data.


  1. isomerisation

    Isomerisation is a chemical process in which a compound is transformed into another compound with the same atomic constituents and the same molecular mass, but with a difference in the organization or distribution of atoms within the molecule, resulting in different chemical properties. This transformation often involves the rearrangement of the compound's atoms or functional groups.
