I'm not clear on what you want, but have you tried StrongComponents from 
the GraphPlot package? This function will give you a list of the 
vertices in each disconnected cluster (assuming the graph is 
undirected). In your example, we would convert d to an undirected graph 
and then use StrongComponents:

comps = StrongComponents[ Join[d, Reverse/@d] ];
