The stabilities of the trans (B) and cis (C) tautomeric ring forms that are experimentally observed in the ring-chain tautomeric interconversion of 1-alkyl-3-aryl-2,3-dihydro-1H-naphth[1,2-e][1,3]oxazines has been investigated. Stability differences are explained by the analysis of the natural bond orbital results for the lone pairs of electrons that are on the heteroatoms in the oxazine ring system and by regression analysis of the calculated 13C NMR chemical shift values.
