Alpha-, beta-, and gamma-deuterium isotope effects were measured for the hydrolysis reactions in water of four n-propyl compounds. Interpretation of the alpha - and beta kinetic isotope effects follows existing theory. The gamma - effect is attributed to inhibition of vibrations involving the gamma -CH/sub 3/ group by increased intramolecular van der Waals forces arising in the transition state of the reaction.
