While writing up these experiments- performed around 12 months ago for a 'lookingforheat.com' newsletter it occurred to me that the reported phenomenon might be explained by reference to another paper I wrote recently- 'patents revealed !' which is in this forum.

ANOMALOUS HEAT IN CARBON/LEAD/HYDROGEN SYSTEMS.
Simple And Accessible – But Is It LENR?Alan Smith, Sam Hansson and Martin Moore. November 2016.
ABSTRACT.While investigating the electrolytic activation of granular carbon for use as a catalyst for generating pure hydrogen from water and a metallic hydroxyl ion acceptor, members of a research group here and in the USA witnessed sudden and unexpected evolution of considerable amounts of thermal energy, and the release of what is probably Beta radiation. In all cases this resulted in (at least) the breaching of the electrolysis cell. We present a full account of the test methodology, a hypothesis for the origin of the heat element of this event, and offer assistance to researchers who would like to investigate this further.
