When the following compound is treated with sodium methoxide in methanol, two elimination products are possible. Explain why the deuterated product predominates by about a 7:1 ratio (refer to Problem 6-75).

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution:

Step 1

Here mechanism of the reaction involves E2 reaction. It is known that the C-D cleavage can be up to 7 times slower than C-H cleavage, so the formed from the breaking of C-H should be 7 times fast and the ratio is  7:1.

          (Minor product, Cleavage of C-D)                    (Major product, cleavage of C-H)
