Any Way to Easily Obtain Deuterium?
I've had an interest in how physicists obtain deuterium for their experiments (especially those dealing with nuclear fusion). I know it comes in small quantities in water, in the form of deuterium oxide ('heavy water') . It also comes in the form of 'heavy methane' also. I've looked at several patents dealing with extracting deuterium from such sources. Is their any do-it-yourself (DIY) techniques that could use every day materials to obtain deuterium?
