    The boiling point of heavy water, also known as deuterium oxide or D2O, is approximately 101.4 degrees Celsius (214.5 degrees Fahrenheit) at standard atmospheric pressure. This is slightly higher than the boiling point of normal water, which is 100 degrees Celsius (212 degrees Fahrenheit) at the same pressure. The difference in boiling points between heavy water and normal water is due to the difference in the mass of the hydrogen atoms present in the molecules. In heavy water, the hydrogen atoms are replaced by deuterium, which is an isotope of hydrogen that contains one proton and one neutron in its nucleus, making it heavier than ordinary hydrogen.
