Another Patent Grant About to be Made to Piantelli (Doug Marker)

The following was submitted by Doug Marker:

This news was posted by AlainCo at the blog here  and seems to further strengthen Piantelli’s position in regard to LENR+ recognition.

What this mean is that yet another patent is going to be granted to Piantelli.  Back in Dec 2012, Piantelli was granted this patent…

and now is being notified he will be granted this one too …

The details of the new patent are here …

    Well we have some potential catalysts now.

    OK, loking at this from a chemist’s perspective, then the next nickel additive to be used in the current rash of ‘hot tube’ experiments were are now starting to see should be Sodium Borohydride, NaBH4.

    It is nearly as powerful a reducing agent (ie H – source) as LiAlH4, but is much easier to use. Mention of Boron in Piantelli’s patent makes one wonder if Li is needed (as has been widely speculated) or whether other equally viable routes exist to getting the excess heat effect in nickel mixed with other agents, such as this.

      I’m sure that as the ‘Edisonian’ replication attempts gather speed that all possible combinations of light metal hydrides will be tried, probably along with a variety of nano-metal substrates such as titanium, tin, iron, tungsten, chromium etc., as well as nickel.

      Blacklight’s archive contains a couple of papers from Rowan University that mention potassium magnesium hydride for instance, plus several other ‘possibles’ that they refer to as ‘Generation 2’ hydrogen donors:

      All good fodder for the garage experimenters. And then there are all the equivalent deuterides…

        I tend to think there is some manner of “cahoots” at work in the Mills/Rossi/Piantelli camps. Early Ni+H work was once a significant part of Mills web site and story. His early reactors looked remarkably like those of Dr. Rossi.

        Dr. Mills holds an ( year 2000) EU and US patent for “Lower Energy Hydrogen Methods and Structures.” This patent suggests the hydrino theory is the underlying mechanism for all Ni+H excess heat effects. In which case, even the Piantelli patents are preceded by Mills/Blacklight.

        There are likely some hefty patent court cases in the offing. However, work on commercial products will continue and the SCIENCE of LENR will become a part of mainstream physics – except at MIT and Caltech. 🙂

          Rossi/Mills/Piantelli all very similar.
          I think Mills became frustrated not being able to overcome an impasse & took a whole new approach.

          I recall that Focardi said that Rossi took an approach that no one else in the field would have even considered.
          Anyway, I predict when this all comes to pass-

          Rossi/Mills/Piantelli ALL Penniless

          FORBES list of top 400 will be 400 Lawyers.

      Rossi used Boron long in the past. One of the 1st things at the beginning of his JONP.
      I believe it was 1 of the things used to negate radiation along with lead shielding.

      • Agaricus

        I think that was probably just a precaution against possible neutron emission. Boron is a strong neutron absorber, and is used in the control rods of conventional fission reactors for that purpose.

      Why Sodium? How about LiBH4 ??

      • timycelyn

        True – once a robust test bed has been developed, it seems there will be a lot of handle-turning to do….

  • Curbina

    This is very good also from the public acceptance of LENR as a valid research field. I am also happy because Chile is a great producer of both lithium and boron.
