Heavy water

scroll

Deuterium oxide, D2O; water containing two deuterium atoms instead of the two light hydrogen atoms. Natural water contains one deuterium atom per 6,500 molecules H2O. D2O has a low neutron absorption cross-section. It is therefore applicable as a moderator in natural-uranium-fuelled reactors.
