Summary:D/H and 18O/16O fractionation between brucite and NaCl solutions at 250-450°C and 0.5 kbar is reported and provides the first experimental calibration of this fractionation and places constraints on the effect of a dissolved salt on D/H fractionation at sub-and super-critical conditions. The results show that NaCl appears to have a small effect on D/H fractionation between minerals and aqueous solutions particularly for fluids near sea-water salinity. For O isotopes, measured values of 10001nαbr-sw (fractionation factor between brucite and aqueous NaCl solution) at 250 to 450°C indicate that brucite is depleted in 18O relative to coexisting NaCl solutions, and the degree of depletion decreases with increasing T and is not strongly dependent on salinity. For D/H fractionation 10001nαbr-sw values are -32 ± 60/00 (3.2 wt.% NaCl; 250°C), -21 ± 20/00 (10.0 wt.% NaCl; 350°C) and -22 ± 20/00 (3.2 wt.% NaCl; 450°C), indicating that brucite is depleted in D relative to coexisting aqueous NaCl solutions.
