Abstract : The purpose of this report is to identify fundamental and applied research related to the deuterated lubricant approach required to develop oxidatively stable, high-temperature lubricants. This report presents a brief history and overview of the Navy's deuterated lubricant research. Two pertinent chemical effects on lubrication performance are reviewed - the deuterium isotope effect and lubricant additive effects. Finally, future research needs related to deuterated lubricants are presented in detail. (Author)
