Catalysts using suitably supported platinum show promise for the commercial production of heavy water. Carbons are potential primary supports for the platinum and metal-support interactions have been observed in this system. These interactions lower the chemical activation energy and increase the rate of reaction under conditions where it seems likely that the support donates electrons to the metal.
