Due to the facile 1,3-B sigmatropic shifts and other skeletal rearrangements facilitated by the 2p atomic orbital of the boron atom, fast equilibria between several tautomeric forms are characteristic for allylic triorganoboranes. Spectrally the most thermodynamically stable isomers are observed, whereas the minor more reactive tautomers often participate in chemical transformations.
