The reaction of ethyl N-[2-(2-Z-acetyl)phenylcarbamates with NaH/THF yields 3-Z-2,4-dihydroxyquinolines [Z=SMe, SOMe, SO2Me and CN]. The study of the tautomeric equilibria of all these substrates by 13C-nmr shows that thioether and nitrile exhibit the 2-quinolone structure, whereas the sulfoxide and probably the sulfone exist as 4-quinolone tautomers.
