Abstract

Secondary α-deuterium isotope effects have been determined for reactions of the Grignard reagent from l-bromopentane-1,1-d2 with phenylacetylene and with benzonitrile. Isotope effects were found to be 0.998 ± 0.03 and 1.003 ± 0.022, respectively. The small isotope effects may be consistent with a variety of mechanisms, including electron transfer and cyclic or open polar electrophilic attacks on the carbon-magnesium bond.
