Use of isotopes for studying reaction mechanisms
The method of isotopic perturbation of equilibrium is described. In conjunction with nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, the procedure can be used to distinguish between double well and single minimum potential energy surfaces. Some representative studies on classical and non-classical carbocations are discussed.
