Abstract

The study of the reduction of some unsaturated diesters under a deuterium atmosphere shows that β-elimination is a very fast process compared to the reductive elimination. This allows the introduction of deuterium atoms at position α of the double bond and the addition of hydrogen atoms on the double bond.
