MetadataShow full item record
It is the aim here to describe the syntheses of two molecules, I and II. As outlined in Scheme I, 5-deutero-2-hexanone, I, gives a handle to the measurement of the electrochemical kinetic isotope effects. An explanation of the nature of kinetic isotope effects and their relation to this investigation is also presented. A description of the electrochemical oxidation of 2-hexanone has been described.
