Deuterium: Discovery and Applications in Organic Chemistryprovides a well-illustrated overview of the discovery of 2H or heavy hydrogen, the stable hydrogen isotope with both a proton and a neutron in its nucleus. The work introduces the isotope, its discovery, physical properties, nomenclature, and common compounds, also exploring its application in organic chemistry through classic and recent examples from literature. Finally, the book devotes one chapter to Deuterium in medicinal chemistry and the biological effects of Deuterium Oxide, better known as D2O.

  • Provides unique coverage not found elsewhere that is presented in an accessible, dedicated short work
  • Contains practical information and examples on the use of Deuterium (D or 2H, Heavy Hydrogen) in organic synthesis
  • Presents a detailed description of Deuterium's discovery and applications in the pharmaceutical industry
