Water and hydrogen atom elimination from ionised n-propanol: extraordinarily large kinetic isotope effects

Abstract

Hydrogen atom loss from ionised n-propanol occurs specifically from the α-carbon atom and is subject to a kinetic isotope effect of approximately 500∶1; somewhat smaller, though still very large, isotope effects are manifested in water loss, which is initiated by an essentially site-specific 1,4-hydrogen transfer.
