A convenient procedure is presented whereby the chirality of isopentenyl alcohols labeled with deuterium in the 2-position can be determined by1H NMR analysis of their chiral esters. The MTPA, MPA and O-acetylmandelate esters were investigated in a series of NMR solvents. The best results were obtained using the O-acetylmandelates in C6D6with homodecoupling of the 1-position. © 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
