Using Lithium Salt as Lithium Source in LENR (Jeff)

The following post was submitted by Jeff

See H. Ikegami’s paper “Nature of Chemonuclear Fusion”

www.roxit.ax/CN.pdf

He states that chemonuclear fusion can occur in fused salts as well as a gaseous environment. If true, it opens the possibility of substituting a low MP Li salt as a Li source.

H2 would still need to supplied, probably as a gas but would avoid the risks of LiAlH4. An interesting first experiment might be to mix a Li salt with Ni/Fe particles and pressurize with H2. This could be done using a concentric heater/alumina configuration of the E-cat, but with an external H2 feed.

Another advantage of using a liquid medium is the improved thermal conductivity to the alumina envelope and less of a chance of hot spots. If such an approach proves viable one could imagine building a pilot project consisting of a flow-based E-cat where the hot Ni/Li salt liquid is cycled between a heater and heat exchanger to generate steam.

    LENR in a liquid (molten) environment. Than the concept of loading H into the lattice of a transition metal is not the answer? The action-happen-on-surface (at the interface between different densities) might still be valid though. Is SPP giving collective electron movements as virtual heavy (slow) elementary particles still valid here?

      Running LENR in a molten salt would be wonderful from the design of the installation point of view.

    I have a patent pending on a chemonuclear fusion reactor using liquid lithium and molten lithium salts. If you are located in the United states and you want a partnership to test the reactor design contact me at inventzilla@gmail.com
