Abstract: We give a sufficient condition in order that an ideal of a real quadratic field $F$ capitulates in the cyclotomic $\Z_3$-extension of $F$ by using a unit of an intermediate field. Moreover, we give new examples of $F$'s for which Greenberg's conjecture holds by calculating units of fields of degree 6, 18, 54 and 162.
