In spite of an earlier statement (Bull. Chem. Soc. Jpn. *1981, 54, 1844), ring-chain tautomeric mixtures were obtained from serine methyl or ethyl ester with aromatic aldehydes. Tautomeric ratios gave a good correlation according to the equation log K = ρ{variant}σ+ + log K0. A clear tendency was also found between the tautomeric ratios and the dielectric constants of the solvents.
