Abstract S>Comparisons of the rate of reaction of potassium isopropoxide with CHCl<sub>2</sub>OCH<sub>3</sub> and CDCl<sub>2</sub>OCH<sub>3</sub> showed a marked deuterium kinetic isotope effect (k<sub>H</sub>/k<sub>D</sub> = 5.4 2.2). This shows that the reaction involves an initial alpha -dehydrochlorination to give the intermediate methoxychloromethylene. In other experiments, potassium thiophenoxide was found to be about as reactive as potassium isopropoxide toward dichloromethyl methyl ether.
