paul asked the Naked Scientists:
   
I would be so grateful if you could tell me what deuterium sulphate is, what is its form and where does it come from?

What do you think?

Sulphuric acid made with deuterium instead of hydrogen: D2SO4 instead of H2SO4. Chemically, they should have almost the same properties.
D2SO4 can be made from D2O, that is "heavy water": D2O + SO3 --> D2SO4
