Deuterated organic molecules are of interest for many applications ranging from mechanistic investigations in basic organic and physical chemistry to the development of new pharmaceuticals. Thus, methodologies for isotope-labelling reactions continue to be important. Here, a convenient methodology for hydrogen/deuterium exchange reactions in electron-rich arenes is reported using simple iron salts and deuterium oxide as isotope source.
