DeuteriumOxide provides thermodynamic propery information for deuteriium oxide, otherwise known as heavy water or D2O, which has a molar mass of 20.0275 g/gmol.  The thermodynamic properties are determined from the equation of state in: 


J. Kestin and J.V. Sengers

"New International Formulations for the Thermodynamic Properties of Light and Heavy Water"

J. Phys. Chem. Ref. Data, 15(1):305-321, 1986.


The correlation is valid for temperatures in the range between the triple point (276.97 K) to 800 K at pressures up to 100 MPa.  


Specific internal energy and specific entropy values are referenced to 0 kJ/kg and 0 kJ/kg-K, respectively, for saturated liquid at 276.935 K.


Viscosity and thermal conductivity information is from:


N. Matsunaga and A. Nagashima

"Transport Properties of Liquid and Gaseous D2O over a Wide Range of Temperature and Pressure"

J. Phys. Chem. Ref. Data, Vol. 12, No.4, 1983.


Other transport properties are provided using correlations given in:
