Deuterium Isotope Information and Examples of Enriched Deuterium Applications:

Deuterium isotope (H-2 isotope, 2H isotope)

  • Deuterium isotope is used for used to slow down neutrons in heavy water moderated fission reactors (MFR);
  • Deuterium isotope is used for used in hydrogen nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (proton NMR);
  • Deuterium isotope is used for used as a non-radioactive, stable isotopic tracer e.g. in environmental science and chemistry;
  • Deuterium isotope is used for used for production of deuterated drug or deuterium-containing drugs;

Hydrogen Information

Colourless, odourless gaseous chemical element. Lightest and most abundant element in the universe. Present in water and in all organic compounds. Chemically reacts with most elements. Discovered by Henry Cavendish in 1776.

Most hydrogen is used in the production of ammonia. Also used in balloons and in metal refining. Also used as fuel in rockets. Its two heavier isotopes are: deuterium (D) and tritium (T) used respectively for nuclear fission and fusion.
