  • question_answer Which isotope of hydrogen is used as a tracer in organic reactions.


                    Hydrogen 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.
