Abstract: A detailed experimental and theoretical UV-spectral analysis of the tautomeric forms of 3-methyl-1-phenyl pyrazol-5-one and 1,3-diphenyl pyrazol-5-one as well as of the UV-irradiated photoinduced products of the latter compound were carried out. The experimental UV-spectra were compared with the theoretical ones obtained by CIS/6-31G**. Selected geometrical parameters of the different tautomers were estimated by ab initio calculations using the RHF/6-31G** level of theory and basis set, which have also been discussed with a view to the corresponding UV-results.
