It discovered (on 22passi) that the patent of Piantelli is granted. (decision to grant is taken since 30/7/2015)
note that there is reference to Lithium, in the claims !
A method to obtain energy by nuclear reactions between hydrogen (31) and a transition metal, said method including the steps of:
— prearranging (110) a primary material (19) comprising a predetermined amount of cluster nanostructures (21) having a number of atoms (38) of said transition metal lower than a predetermined number of atoms;
— keeping said hydrogen (31) in contact with said clusters (21);
— heating (130) said primary material (19) at an initial process temperature (T1) higher than a predetermined critical temperature;
— dissociation of H2 molecules of said hydrogen (31) and formation of H- ions (35) as a consequence of said step of heating;
— impulsively acting (140) on said primary material (19);
— orbital capture (150) of said H- ions (35) by said cluster nanostructures (21) as a consequence of said step (140) of impulsively acting;
— capture (151) of said H- ions (35) by said atoms (38) of said clusters (21), generating a thermal power as a primary reaction heat (Q1); removing (160) said thermal power, maintaining the temperature of the
primary material (19) above said critical temperature,
characterised in that
it provides a step (115) of prearranging an amount of a secondary material (28) that faces said primary material (19) and within a predetermined maximum distance (L) from said primary material (19), said secondary material (28) arranged to interact with protons (35"’) emitted from said primary material (19) by energy-releasing proton-dependent nuclear reactions that occur with a release of further thermal power in the form of a secondary reaction heat (Q2), such that said step of removing (160) comprises said generated thermal power as said primary reaction heat (Q1) and said secondary reaction heat (Q2).
2 A method according to claim 1, wherein said secondary material (28) comprises Lithium, in particular said Lithium comprising predetermined fractions of 6Li and 7Li isotopes.
In the description Boron is an alternative to Lithium, as "secondary material".
he propose also to add or use instead, others metal alloys, in amorphous state.
he talk also of structural metal, 4 times the quantity of secondary material.
Independently secondary material may comprise 1-10% of lithium (by weight).
he propose a way to create that complex aloys, with amorphous phase, with some melting/cooling...
some radioactive isotopes are cited (Th, U, Pu...)... strange...
some triggering actions are proposed...
replicators should read it in details, because I suspect there is link with Rossi, parkhomov&al
if someone can replicate Piantelli, it will be good for him.
