Description/Abstract:
A SIMPLE, RAPID METHOD FOR DETERMINATION OF DEUTERIUM OXIDE IN WASTER HAS BEEN DEVISED. THE FREEZING POINT OF DEUTERIUM OXIDE IS 3.802 DEGREES CELSIUS. HENCE, A METHOD FOR MEASURING FREEZING POINTS TO A THOUSANDTH OF A DEGREE SHOULD PERMIT DIFFERENTIATION OF AT LEAST 0.01 PERCENT DEUTERIUM OXIDE IN WATER. SUCH A METHOD IS NOW AVAILABLE IN THE FORM OF THE FISKE OSMOMETER. THE SIMPLICITY AND RELIABILITY OF THIS METHOD ENSURE ITS USEFULNESS IN THE STUDY OF MANY PROBLEMS INVOLVING DEUTERIUM OXIDE IN THE MEDICAL, BIOLOGIC, PHYSICAL, AND CHEMICAL FIELDS, PROVIDED THAT LEVELS OF CONCENTRATION OF DEUTERIUM OXIDE ARE SUCH AS TO FALL WITHIN RANGE OF THE OSMOMETER. THE SENSITIVITY OF THE METHOD CAN BE INCREASED BY MORE PRECISE DETERMINATIONS OF THE FREEZING POINTS.
