The relative rates of the reactions of hydrogen iodide and deuterium iodide with methyl iodide were studied by a competitive method at 310° and 250°C. The analysis of hydrogen‐deuterium mixtures was accomplished by means of a simple viscometer with an accuracy of 0.5 percent. It was found that hydrogen iodide reacts about 1.4 times as fast as deuterium iodide at both temperatures. These results are discussed in terms of Eyring's theory of absolute reaction rates and a simple model.
