Physicochemical properties and biological activity of the water depleted of heavy isotopes

Data on physicochemical properties of the light water (deuterium concentration is reduced to the ratio D/H = 4 ppm and that of the isotope of oxygen 18-to the ratio 18O/16O = 750 ppm) have been obtained. They include the melting and boiling points, kinematic viscosity, density, the spin-spin proton relaxation time, self-diffusion coefficients, and the small-angle laser light scattering. It was found out that the biological activity of the light water was determined by the mechanisms different from the ligand-induced toxic effects. An explanation was proposed for the detected significant changes of the light water as compared with the high-resistivity water having geochemically ordinary isotope composition. This explanation was based on the mechanism of formation of supramolecular density inhomogeneities in water representing the deuterium-stabilized heterophase clusters. © 2011 Allerton Press, Inc.
