Possible Participation of Lithium in Fleischmann-Pons Reaction is Testable

  • P. Frodl , O. E. Rössler , M. Hoffmann and F. Wah


If the amount of heat reported by Fleischmann and Pons to occur in their electrochemical "fusion" experiment is assumed to be produced entirely by the "clean" nuclear reaction 6Li + 2D → 2dHe (22.4 MeV), then the concentration of 6Li in the reaction fluid should during a period of 120 hours go down by a measurable amount, namely between 3.4 and 0.25 percent dependent on whether the natural isotopic mixture of (less likely) pure 6 Li was used in the experiment
