    The mind boggles - how can anyone in 2007 not understand that water electrolysis produces H2 and O2 explosive gas mixtures? Weird science proposing altered bond angles in water molecules, its just crazy stuff and yet the US patent office swallowed this…

    Maybe using beach sand is a better option then, with all its contaminants.

    You do an injustice to this important paper Doctoral student Lu, and his mentor Hagelstein's wrote. It is much more than Dewey and IH, as one would think from your comment. It reads more like a book. 13 Chapters, and it covers…

    Its the second paper in the latest Japanese journal from the link:

    http://jcfrs.org/proc_jcf.html

    Their papers are quite difficult to decipher and seem to include quite a lot of irrelevant data losing the point occasionally. I have worked with…

    This is a very dramatic description of the transient heat released. The Japanese are being somewhat inscrutable in this presentation as if they've made a big discovery but are playing down its significance - why release the gas pressure (Pr) in the…

    Should have it all up and running by now, 1 and 10 kW reactors. Takahashi's group latest publication describes a 3 kW transient excess heat production from a 1 Kg reactor core, so maybe they have only been able to produce transient heat levels from…

    This way of preparing the catalyst is probably easier (for large quantities). In other catalytic reactions (eg methanol production) adding in about 1/7 Cu to Ni is known to enhance catalytic activity.

    Theranos was an obvious disaster waiting to happen - the only point relevant is that his investment in IH probably has no influence on his present problems -

    Woodford's just another casualty then of Brexit economic lunacy. Nothing to do with IH or cold fusion.

    Well this bunch of loony toons will hopefully publish a response to the Nature paper sometime soon, Their intention was to hammer the final nail in cold fusion's coffin. So until then, keep on smiling :).

    We need to publish some positive results, or promote positive work like Takahashi's or maybe the groups working under the IH 'umbrella' could publish something to stem such a loss of confidence.

    Now there's an idea.. some perovskites melt at 4000K..
    the organic coating might be a problem
    Perovskite research has so many players

    They need to scale up to larger reactor cores and use a 1:7 Cu/Ni alloy mix and possibly use ZrO2 instead of Al2O3 judging from Takahashi group's recent work using 1 Kg reactor core which released an initial transient 3 kW power. Worth a try maybe? :)

    Has the Nature paper sparked a loss of confidence in IH?

    So now they're working on how to sustain this heat burst for extended periods - increasing the mass or density of the reactants Cu/Ni/ZrO2 loaded with H or D would seem to be the obvious answer - to some super-critical level.

    Be nice if the Google gang could replicate this excess heat by testing out some of their Cu/Ni/ZrO2 nano particle samples. Or do they want to carry on living in the 'Dark Age of Fossil Fuels'? Surprised they haven't explored more cutting-edge nanotech…

    Takahashi's group are now reporting 3 kW bursts of excess heat from their Cu/Ni/ZrO2 nano particle samples using Just over 1 Kg quantities :
