[3]H Nmr spectroscopy is an excellent technique for the determination of tritium distribution in a molecule. The present work was undertaken in order to solve ambiguities in the [3]H nmr spectra of some tritiated amino acids and study the mechanisms of reaction used for the tritiation of some compounds. This thesis is divided into six sections as follows: The General Introduction contains a literature survey highlighting the properties of tritium and the applications of [3]H nmr spectroscopy. In the first chapter the analysis of the 3H nmr spectra of tritiated DL-valine and B-alanine are discussed. In chapter two, the preparation of tritiated taurine and the mechanism of the reaction is discussed. In chapter three the use of Dichlorotris(triphenyl phosphine) ruthenium II as a catalyst for the preparation of tritiated alcohols and the mechanism of the catalytic tritiation are discussed. In chapter four the photochemical oxidation of Benzo(a)pyrene in solution is discussed. In chapter five shale oil was separated from retort water and tritiated by different types of catalytic methods.
