It exists in two equivalent tautomeric forms, because hydrogen can be bound to one or the other nitrogen atom. Imidazole is a highly polar compound, as evidenced by its electric dipole moment of 3. Some resonance structures of imidazole are shown below: Amphoterism[ edit ] Imidazole is amphoteric. That is, it can function as both an acid and as a base. As an acid, the pKa of imidazole is The acidic proton is the one bound to nitrogen.
