The transition point, of a number of salts, have been determined. The thermometric method for determining transition temperatures was used. An apparatus was used which required only a few ml. of the deuterium oxide yet accurate to within ± .002°C. After comparing the transition points of deuterates with those of the corresponding hydrates, isomorphous crystals seemed to be similarly affected. The fact that certain deuterates show a higher transition temperature and others a lower transition temperature than that of corresponding hydrates, suggests tentative conclusions as to the relative degree of hydration on the cations and anions.
