isotope exchange

[′ī·sə‚tōp iks¦chānj]
(nucleonics)
Exchange of places by two atoms, but different isotopes, of the same element in two different molecules, or in different locations of the same molecule.
The transfer of isotopically tagged atoms from one chemical form or valence state to another, without net chemical reaction.

Specifically, collected tritiated water is contacted with a catalyst that makes hydrogen isotope exchange between protium gas (normal hydrogen gas) and tritiated moisture possible, before being reduced in volume and enriched.
Moreover, tritium-vapor hydrogen isotope exchange efficiency is approximately 1.
When ozone reacts with carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, it transfers its isotopic weirdness to the new molecule," said Shaheen, who investigated this process of oxygen isotope exchange as a graduate student at the University of Heidelberg in Germany.
The central part of this project, and this is a new concept, is to investigate the proton conducting process by Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (SIMS) after 2H/1H isotope exchange.
