Abstract An equal mixture of deuterium and tritium will be the fuel used in a fusion reactor. It is important to study the recycling and mixing of these hydrogen isotopes in graphite from several points of view: (i) impact on the ratio of deuterium to tritium in a reactor, (ii) continued use of graphite as a first wall and divertor material, and (iii) reaction with carbon atoms and the transport of hydrocarbons will provide insight into chemical erosion. Dynamic Monte-Carlo techniques are used to study the reactive–diffusive transport of hydrogen isotopes and interstitial carbon atoms in a 3-D porous graphite structure irradiated with hydrogen and deuterium and is compared with published experimental results for hydrogen re-emission and isotope exchange.
