Relation between deuterium retention, wall temperature and hydrocarbon generation in 30-s H-mode discharges of JT-60U was described. In discharges with a density below 50% of the Greenwald density, the trend of the deuterium retention against pulse number depended on the wall temperature: with increasing pulse number, the deuterium retention decreased at a wall temperature of 300 $$^{circ}$$C, decreased gradually at 150 $$^{circ}$$C, and remained constant at 80 $$^{circ}$$C. In contrast, in discharges with high densities above 70% of the Greenwald density, the deuterium retention increased with increasing pulse number at the above three wall temperatures. In the high density discharges, the deuterium retention flux increased with increasing hydrocarbon generation flux, suggesting that the deuterium is retained in co-deposition layers of carbon, which originated from the hydrocarbons.
