The preparation and assignment of stereochemistry of some deutero-substituted l-acetyl-4-t-butyl- cyclohex-l-enes is described. The formation of (l-3-η)-PdCl complexes from these compounds is accompanied by a non-stereoselective loss of H and D, in agreement with a mechanism of formation which involves an initial palladium-assisted enolization of the ketone.
