Deuteration reactions using the H-Cube® continuous flow reactor

Deuterium-labeled compounds are widely used as research tools in chemistry. Their importance lies in a number of applications, such as: proving reaction mechanisms, investigation of a compound’s pharmacokinetic properties, internal standards in mass spectrometry, compound structure determination in NMR spectroscopy.
The H-Cube® continuous flow system is capable of generating deuterium gas from the electrolysis of D2O, which is readily available in 99.98% purity and is easy to handle.
