Paper: “Nuclear Metamorphosis in Mercury”

The following post has been submitted by Curbina.

I wanted to comment about some great insights I have come to lately and to share a couple of articles with you, one (from 2015) which is open access and the other (from 2017) that was a follow up and is not open access but was graciously shared with me by the main author, Prof. F Cardone of the Italian National Research Council, with the gentle reminder that was for my personal use only.

The openly available article is titled, “Nuclear Metamorphosis in Mercury” and was published on Researchgate, and in the International Journal of Modern Physics B in December 2015. Full text is available here:</

Abstract:The conditions of local Lorentz invariance (LLI ) breakdown, obtained during neutron emission from a sonicated cylindrical bar of AISI 304 steel, were reproduced in a system made of a mole of mercury. After 3 min, a part of the liquid transformed into solid state material, in which isotopes were found with both higher and lower atomic mass with respect to the starting material. Changes in the atomic weight without production of gamma radiation and radionuclides are made possible by deformed space-time reactions.

I think these two articles are of tremendous importance because they achieved results of dramatic proportions and could well be the way to prove once and for all that Nuclear phenomena can happen well outside the conditions that are predicted and expected by Quantum Mechanics and the Standard Model.

These articles are the work from Prof. Fabio Cardone and his large team of collaborators, and unfortunately, bear the “taint” of being done by them as part of the validation of the theory that Cardone and others have developed to explain what they call piezonuclear reactions, which are the anomalies that happen in both solids and liquids when cavitation is induced in them (their preferred method is vía ultrasonic emitting devices). They have published since the 1990s and have developed both theoretical and experimental work all these years, a very prolific line of research with remarkable results, but IMHO the research I am sharing here is the most spectacular due to the dramatic nature of the changes they are capable of inducing in mercury by applying ultrasound, which are an nearly instantaneous change of phase from liquid to solid (within 180 seconds) and the transmutation of mercury into over a dozen of solid elements in different proportions within the grains of the heterogenous granulated material they obtain from doing these experiments. It is simply jaw dropping, and I hope you feel as amazed and fascinated by these results as I am.

I put myself in contact with Prof. Cardone since a few days after I learnt through E-Cat World about the visit of the MFMP to Ohmasa. I was captivated more than anything by the transmutation aspect of Ohmasa’s work, and as I was trying to find supporting literature to his findings (due to the fact that his transmutation patent is currently in non final rejection because it disagrees with mainstream theories, and Bob Greenyer suggested some literature to support him) and I stumbled in the large body of work of Cardone in liquid phase cavitation experiments.

I spent my Sunday morning watching some YouTube videos of lectures of professor Cardone, he is a great lecturer, I am able to understand around 80% of what he says in Italian due to the common root of Spanish and Italian. Now I see that he and his team are working completely confident in their results, they are well funded and take pride on putting Italy at the leading edge of new nuclear science, and they are focused in scaling up to useful industrial applications. There is a patent application also, of a system for producing energy or transmutation with ultrasound, which I started to read last night (it belongs to the Conziglio Nationals di la Ricerche, which is of the Italian Government, but for the US territory, it belongs to Fabio Cardone himself) .
