1. Starting from trans-cinnamic acid a chiral (-)3-phenyl-[2,3-2H]propionic acid has been synthesized using Clostridium kiuyveri cells as catalyst. 2. The chiral dideuterated acid has been converted by chemical methods to a mixture of (2R) and (2S)-phenyl[2,3-2H]-alanine. 3. By means of 1H nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and the action of D and L-amino acid oxidase the configuration of the phenylalamine has been shown to be (2R, 3S) and (2S, 3S), respectively. The labelled phenylalanine is thus sterically and isotopically homogenous at position 3 but heterogenous at position 2.
