Deuterium isotope was measured according to the Vienna Standard Mean Ocean Water using internal standard calibration with the international standard by an isotopic water analyzer (Picarro L2130-i, Santa Clara, California, USA).
Nebular hydrogen, which contains less deuterium and is lighter than asteroidal hydrogen, dissolved into the molten iron of the magma ocean.
Therefore, the aim of this study was to determine the effect of deuterium on biological properties of human adipose-derived stem cell (ADSCs) cultures within in vitro cell model.
Many of the initial studies into the use of liquid deuterium for cold neutron science were pioneered by the French in the late 60s.
The sun, like the universe overall, has very low levels of deuterium, about one-tenth as much as what is found in Earth's water.

Deuterium is important because it tends to bond with certain molecules in cold conditions.
Using a cryogenic deuterium pellet injector installed on the DIII-D Tokamak operated by General Atomics in San Diego, Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) researchers and collaborators were able to fire millimetre-sized frozen deuterium pellets into ultra-hot plasma at a rate of 60 times per second.
Hamamatsu's LI 1798 and LI 1799 deuterium light source units offer ultrahigh brightness and ease of use for a wide variety of UV applications such as semiconductor inspection, film thickness measurement, UV-visiblc spectroscopy, and environmental analysis.
I'm working out a complete theory of the process of interaction of deuterium gas in a lattice of palladium, in which the key point is the existence of micro-crack and micro-explosions, in the absence of radioactive nuclides, ie, clean energy as a result, within the deuterated lattices, considering particularly the quantum theory.
Thorium cermets imported into the EU from South Korea currently attract 5.5% duties--these would be scrapped, as would 5.5% duties on heavy water, deuterium and compounds; hydrogen and compounds thereof, enriched in deuterium; and mixtures and solutions containing these products, strontium and barium.
