Desmotropy in reduced plumbagins: alpha- and beta-Dihydroplumbagins

A report of 1933 about the desmotropy of dihydroplumbagin was examined using both DFT calculations and high field NMR experiments. It was concluded that the report was essentially correct because both tautomers were isolated and characterized.
