The influence of heavy water present in nutrient broth on the growth of a number of microorganisms was investigated. In the case of certain bacteria the multiplication of cells was less in D2O medium and with K.aerogenes it was completely suppressed. The growth of K.aerogenes was also dependent on the concentration of heavy water. In the case of citrate-positive organisms, the utilization of citrate carbon in the presence of D2O was delayed and in the case of K.aerogenes it became citrate-negative
