(+)-1-Butanol-1-d was converted by reactions of known stereochemistry to (R)-(-)-1-bromopentane-2-d which was also related to (S)-(-)-pentane-2-d via asymmetric hydroboration reactions on 1-pentene-2-d. The configurations previously assigned to the deuterio alcohols on the basis of mechanisms are confirmed by these interconversions.
