Stable isotope-labeled compounds are used as environmental pollutant standards for the detection of air, water, soil, sediment and food.
In addition to treating various diseases, isotopes are used for imaging, diagnosis, and newborn screening.
Small molecule compounds labeled with stable isotopes can be used as chemical reference for chemical identification, qualitative, quantitative, detection, etc. Various types of NMR solvents can be used to study the structure, reaction mechanism and reaction kinetics of compounds.
Stable isotope labeling allows researchers to study metabolic pathways in vivo in a safe manner.

Hydrogen is a significant life element, and it is also the basis for a variety of biological macromolecules to form complex structures. There are three isotopic forms of hydrogen in nature, namely protium (1H), deuterium (2H), and tritium (3H). The most common isotope of hydrogen is protium, which accounts natural abundance of more than 99% and is mainly distributed in water and various hydrocarbons. Deuterium is a rare, stable, non-radioactive hydrogen isotope used as a tracer atom in chemical and biological research. Tritium, a radioactive isotope of hydrogen, is extremely limited in nature.
A deuterium-labeled compound replaces ordinary hydrogen with stable isotope deuterium as a label. Deuterium has a geometric structure similar to hydrogen and variability in space. Therefore, deuterium-labeled compounds generally maintain biochemical activity and selectivity. As tracers, deuterium-labeled compounds play an important role in chemistry, medicine, pharmacy, and life science research.
