    Pretty much almost anything it comes in contact with at elevated temperatures with except for a very few materials like iron.

    I found that in the mainstream literature a process exists, called Electrochemical Micromachining (ECM, or EMM), where very narrow electrode gaps (in the order of microns) are used for etching electronic components and other small pieces with a high…

    Not much to report for the past few days.

    Following the observation under semi-dry electrolytic conditions of facile synthesis of an unstable potassium-iron oxide compound that has been suggested to be the active compound in certain industrial…

    A zeolite-type, K-doped manganese oxide catalyst synthesized ex-novo has been already shown to produce K Rydberg matter by heating in a vacuum; it's probably also good for UDH production too without the need to also add K-Fe2O3 catalyst.

    I've also made a video. The electrode arrangement is similar to what I discussed in another thread.

    I think while testing with open-air electrolysis with mild steel electrodes and a KOH solution (concentration unknown, but it was relatively diluted) I might have created the elusive green KFeO2 compound described in this thread. It looks like under…

    1. Before I start using Pd, Rh or other precious or otherwise expensive metals, many other things would have to be improved in the setup and the equipment, and so far I have deliberately kept costs close to zero, using for the most part what

    I made a very quick test with the electrodes as shown previously, but outside the jar.

    First I tried to apply plain tap water to the narrow gap. This caused the formation of a relatively thick oxide layer from the anode extending to the cathode and…

    At about 5:15 this reference to a 1996 Fleischmann interview by Infinite Energy could be relevant as well, hinting at X-rays that might not be conventional X-rays - in either case some sort of emission that can leak away from the…

    Today I made some more testing, but I couldn't quite get it to the same level of activity as yesterday. I think one reason could be that the electrolyte has acquired a relatively thick consistency from the dissolved metal/metal-oxide particles within…

    Earlier I made other tests by deliberately adding more impurities to the electrolyte, reusing the previous one which had already significant amounts of iron dissolved in it.

    He's trying to solve some electromagnetic interference issues with his instrumentation. Meanwhile I'm doing a slowly progressing test with the new electrode arrangement, and I haven't added relatively large amounts of HCl yet.

    A slow sinusoidal AC voltage could be good if the electrodes are composed of the same material and therefore expected to erode at about the same rate in the process, but this might not necessarily be the case. John Dash typically used Pt…

    To be honest I'd suspect the significantly more abundant Ca (plus Mg) in tap water to have a greater effect, in case introduced additional impurities/elements in this test had a positive influence on the reaction. Didn't Iwamura used…

    He also observed excess heat with "as received" foils. Although in other papers it looked as if cold rolling had a measurable impact especially on Pd, in the study below on Ti foils it didn't seem to bring very large changes. Furthermore…

    Most of the longer, more structured comments I write on the forum are from my personal notes or eventually end up being part of them, so with the above summary I didn't put much more time than I would have by keeping it to myself.
