Tautomeric Shifts II: amino and imino bases

Standard amino and rare imino forms of C & A differ by a spontaneous proton shift between the the adjacent C and N molecules. Note that the molecular formulae do not change, only the configuration of bonds among atoms: the amino and imino forms are therefore tautomers of each other.
