free radical chlorination is a well known reaction with SOCl2. There are 12 positions that can be chlorinated, 4 of them are deuterated. What effect would doubling the mass of the hydrogen have on the reaction? What effect would doubling the mass of a hydrogen have on the stability of a 2nd degree radical?
