At the ICCF conference held at the Univ of Missouri in 2013, I gave a paper on "anomalous heat effects" (AHE) and predicted that, if I was correct, then H2 gas would be as effective as D2 gas.
This report from recent Japanese research (which I consider to be careful work) --http://vixra.org/pdf/1612.0250v1.pdf
Conclusion of the paper:
The sustainable AHE as observed for Pd1Ni7/zirconia (or /meso-silica) and Cu1Ni7/zirconia (or meso-silica) at elevated temperatures (200-300 deg C) have been repeatedly observed after D(H)/M dynamic loading ratios saturated. Averaged η-values at the elevated temperature conditions exceeded 1 keV/D(H) (or 100 MJ/mol-D(H)-transferred). So the explanation by chemical reaction origin is very difficult to fit to this observation. We have given the explanation by the condensed cluster fusion theory (TSC models) as 4D/TSC fusion for D-charging and 4H/TSC WS fusion for H-charging. Why AHE by H-charging showed comparable (or more) excess heat-power to those by D-charging is of mystery to be studied further. However, the sustainable AHE power by Cu1Ni7/zirconia with H-gas charging is very promising result to look forward its industrial application of cheap distributable thermal energy devices.
Note that Pd is not needed; and D2 is not needed! " H-charging showed comparable (or more) excess heat-power to those by D-charging" !!!
