Study of the Structure of 1-Hydroxymethylindazole and 1-Hydroxymethylbenzotriazole by X-ray crystallography, Multinuclear NMR in Solution and DFT Calculations

1-Hydroxymethylindazole and 1-hydroxymethylbenzotriazole have been studied in solution by 1H, 13C and 15N NMR spectroscopy and the X-ray structure of the second compound determined. DFT and GIAO calculations have been used to discuss geometries, energies (comparatively with 2-substituted isomers) and NMR chemical shifts.
