Deuteride phases in the zirconium-deuterium system in the temperature range 25–286 °C have been studied in-situ by high resolution neutron diffraction. The study primarily focused on observations of δ→γ transformation at 180 °C, and the peritectoid reaction α + δ ↔ γ at 255 °C in commercial grade Zr powder that was deuterated to a deuterium/Zr ratio of one to one. A detailed description of the zirconium deuteride preparation route by high temperature gas loading is also described. The lattice parameters of α-Zr, δ-ZrDx and ε-ZrDx were determined by whole pattern crystal structure analysis, using Rietveld and Pawley refinements, and are in good agreement with values reported in the literature. The controversial γ-hydride phase was observed both in-situ and ex-situ in deuterated Zr powder after a heat treatment at 286 °C and slow cooling.
