A review of intramolecular hydrogen bonding in ortho-hydroxyaryl Schiff bases, ortho-hydroxyaryl Mannich bases, dipyrrins, ortho-hydroxyaryl ketones, ortho-hydroxyaryl amides, and 4-Bora-3a,4a-diaza-s-indacene (BODIPY) dyes with tautomeric sensors as substituents is presented in this paper. Ortho-hydroxy Schiff and Mannich base derivatives are known as model molecules for analysing the properties of intramolecular hydrogen bonding. The compounds under discussion possess physicochemical features modulated by the presence of strong intramolecular hydrogen bonds. The equilibrium between intra- and inter-molecular hydrogen bonds in BODIPY is discussed. Therefore, the summary can serve as a knowledge compendium of the influence of the hydrogen bond on the molecular properties of aromatic compounds.
