has three isotopes, viz., H, D and T. Due to difference in masses, the rate
constants of these isotopes with the same substrate are different. In other
words, both D and T show isotope effect. But since T is not only radioactive
but is also least abundant hydrogen isotope, therefore, D is used as a tracer
to study the mechanism of organic reactions.
