A low-molecular weight analog of the vinyl chloride-maleic anhydride copolymer, chloromethylsuccinic anhydride gives rise to a new type of prototropic tautomerism, cyclic anhydride-enol, with formation of quasiaromatic enol and dienol derivatives. The ratio of the anhydride and enol tautomers in solution at room temperature is 7:1.
