R-8.3.4 Isotopically deficient compounds

An isotopically labelled compound may be designated as isotopically deficient when the isotopic content of one or more elements has been depleted, i.e., when one or more nuclide(s) is(are) present in less than the natural ratio.

R-8.3.4.1 Isotopic deficiency is denoted in the formula by adding the italicized syllable 'def' immediately preceding, without a hyphen, the appropriate nuclide symbol.

Examples to R-8.3.4.1

Note: According to one's viewpoint, one may also use .

R-8.3.4.2 The name of an isotopically deficient compound may be formed by adding the italicized syllable def immediately preceding, without a hyphen, the appropriate nuclide symbol, both enclosed in square brackets and cited before the name or that part of the name that is isotopically modified.
