Some Curcumin Isomers and Their Enol Tautomers - A DFT Treatment
Curcumin is a well known natural product having some health benefits. In the present study, within the constraints of density functional theory (at the level of B3LYP/6-31G(d,p)), some configurational isomers of curcumin and their keto-enol tautomers have been investigated. Some quantum chemical, QSAR and spectral data of them have been obtained and discussed.
