Isomerization of the free propyl-d2 radical in solution

  • 15 Accesses


  1. 1.

    The decomposition of butyryl-2,2-d2 peroxide in boiling carbon tetrachloride was studied.

  2. 2.

    In solution, the propyl radical undergoes isomerization as a result of the migration of a hydrogen atom form the 3-position: CH3-CH2-CD2· ⇌ CH2-CH2-CD2H.

  3. 3.

    A propyl radical labeled with deuterium is isomerized to a smaller extent than a deuterium-free radical.

  4. 4.

    Butyryl-2,2-d2 peroxide decomposes with more difficulty that deuterium-free butyryl peroxide.

  5. 5.

    Some new previously undescribed deuterium-containing compounds were prepared: butyryl-2,2-d2 chloride, butyric-2,2-d2 acid, butyryl-2,2-d2 peroxide, and propyl-1,1-d2 chloride.
