A simple and efficient deuteration methodology has been established for a wide variety of substrates using a continuous flow hydrogenation reactor. The described procedure is many times faster (1 mg min-1) compared to literature methods and the purity of the crude product can be as high as 99%. The deuterium source is D2O, the consumption of which is very low.
