Here’s the text of an email sent out today by LENR experimenter Francesco Celani reproduced with permission on 22passi.blogspot.com. He seems to want this information spread far and wide among the LENR research community by way of a warning.
In These days I am performing very simple experiments at low temperatures, down to 77K.
I am using two wires, one with 2 Layers (called “nanodiamandois”) and the other usual with 500 Layers, Both of Constantan type ISOTAN 44.
* Under vacuum and / or He (2.5bar), I detected a PTC (Positive Temperature Coefficient) with the 2L Constantan (about 4%). 500 With Layers The NTC detected (about 3.5%).
* When I added H2 (2.5bar) During cooling down, at a temperature of about -50 ° C,
I EXPERIENCED EXPLOSIO N.
* The bottle, nominally tested at 16 bar at 50 ° C, was completly destroyed. No. iniury to us, thanks to the open plastic tube used as dewar. Just big noise.
* There is a Possibility That Such material is cathalitic even at low temperatures, as reported by Also in old paper of Hydrogen absorption at low temperatures using Constant tick film.
!! PLEASE, SHARE SUCH INFORMATION TO ALL THE PEOPLE INVOLVED in the replication efforts.
Dear [omitted], put in the MFMP Such new blog, ASAP!
Tanks for your collaboration.
In addition to the important safety warning here, it’s fascinating that such an explosion could actually occur at such low temperatures and will probably prompt more examination as to what exactly is going on in these LENR reactions. It sounds like Celani was looking for some kind of reaction to occur, but he sounds surprised about what actually happened here.
