Gee whiz! I am glad I bought two 50 liter backup cylinders for $270 each when I retired in 2014.

Airgas was a waste of time for me to visit.

Back in March I ordered a 50L bottle from Global Rare Gasses. They are SUPER friendly and I would totally reccommend them. 50L cost me about $260 plus $100 for hazmat. The bottle came with a CGA-350 connector on it.

A business address is a requirement though... I had mine shipped to a local rock climbing gym and waited around that morning to sign for it. Everything went smoothly with no problems.

I am glad you found a work-around. I find it sad that deuterium is so hard to obtain at the amateur level. Sounds like anyone that is younger and whose dad works for a small company might arrange for it to be delivered there to the attention of his dad.

That is wonderful news Luke! i just sent them an email...
I do have a business address to ship to no problem, but will they take a credit card payment over the phone?

If you don't mind about heavy water (D2O) instead of deuterium, I could sell some of my heavy water. I've got 3/4 liter, or so.
