Received ; accepted – 2 – ABSTRACT Galactic destruction of primordial deuterium is inevitably linked through star formation to the chemical evolution of the Galaxy. The relatively high present gas content and low metallicity suggest only modest D-destruction. In concert with deuterium abundances derived from solar system and/or interstellar observations this suggests a primordial deuterium abundance in possible conflict with data from some high-redshift, low-metallicity QSO absorbers. We have… CONTINUE READING
