Description: The isotopic composition of dihydrogen generated from formaldehyde in highly basic solutions has been investigated. It is shown that two pathways contribute to the generation of dihydrogen. In the first pathway, one hydrogen atom originates from water and the other from formaldehyde. In the second pathway both hydrogen atoms originate from the methylene moiety of the formaldehyde. For production of dihydrogen from glyoxylate only the first pathway is observed.
