Enediol

Enediol

(Science: chemistry) The atomic arrangement -C(OH)=C(OH)-produced by proton migration from the CH of a -CHOH group that is attached to a -CO-group to the oxygen of the -CO-group (usually induced by alkali), giving rise to doubly bonded carbon atoms (the -ene group), each bearing a -COH group (a diol); a special case of enolization.
