deu·ter·on (d),

(dū'tĕr-on),
The nucleus of hydrogen-2, composed of one neutron and one proton; it thus has the one positive charge characteristic of a hydrogen nucleus.
Synonym(s): deuton, diplon

Further studies on the concept of meta-learning and its distinction from deuteron and planned-learning are discussed in Visser (2007); and the use of organizational meta-learning for the construct of dynamic core competencies is presented by Lei, Hitt and Bettis (1996).

The resulting neutron can combine with another proton to form a composite particle known as a deuteron. These deuterons "burn" via a thermonuclear reaction, and this provides the intense heat and brilliant light of the sun.
In the labs, the fusion of deuteron and triton is more promising.

From the patriarchal narratives, describing God's covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to the story of God's deliverance from Egyptian bondage, to the utterance of prophets and savants, Israel is reminded that God has chosen this people, delivered them, defended them: "Although heaven and the heaven of heavens belong to the Lord your God, the earth with all that is in it, yet the Lord set his heart in love on your ancestors alone and chose you, their descendents after them, out of all the peoples, as it is today" (Deuteron omy 10: 14-15).
