Abstract : A method of separating isotopes of hydrogen which comprises subjecting a mixture of methane and isotopes of hydrogen in a methane to hydrogen mole ratio from about 1000:1 to about 1:10 to a glow electrical discharge from about 10 to the minus 3rd power to about 50eV per hydrogen bond at a temperature from about 50 K. to about 310 K. and at a pressure from about 0.3 Torr to the pressure at which arcing occurs.
