The two sharp doublets associated with (NH2) in the INH were resonate in the down field region at 3.25 ppm and the singlet at 3.88 ppm were attributed to amide protons which were not appeared in spectra of complex that might be due to the exchange of nitrogen proton with deuterium of deuterium oxide.
In the deuterium oxide dose-to-mother technique, the mother consumes an accurately weighed dose of deuterium oxide, which rapidly equilibrates with her body water, including her milk.
Identification of 3,4-Dihydroxy-2-oxo-butanal (L-threosone) as intermediate compound in oxidative degradation of dehydro-L-ascorbic acid and 2,3-diketo-L-gulonic acid in a deuterium oxide phosphate buffer.
Deuterium oxide dilution might be the most feasible alternative, as it is found to be valid (11,12), the met hod is easy to standardise, application is relatively easy even in field situations and samples can be sent for analyses to a specialised laboratory.
Individual solutions (50-[micro]L aliquots) of phenytoin, HPPH, HPPH-glucuronide, phenytoin-N-glucuronide, and the purified fosphenytoin metabolite were incubated with 200 [micro]L of deuterium oxide for 1 h at ambient temperature.
There are a number of sensitive materials with uses in nuclear weapons development which are routinely bought and sold on the world market, but it is India's procurement and use of heavy water (deuterium oxide: |H.sub.2~|O.sub.2~) which has drawn down some of the most severe criticism upon this nation.
The proposed Sudbury Neutrino Observatory would sit 6,800 feet underground in a nickle mine near Sudbury, Ontario, using a heavy water (deuterium oxide) detector to measure the same kind of neutrinos observed at the Kamiokande detector.
What is the more familiar name of deuterium oxide? 8.
Heavy water, formally called deuterium oxide or [D.sub.2]O, is a form of water that contains hydrogen isotope deuterium (D) rather than the common hydrogen-1 isotope (H) that makes up most of the hydrogen in normal water ([H.sub.2]O).
