Abstract:

Calorimetric experiments were conducted to verify the caloric claims by Fleischmann and Pons. A twin-cell heat conduction calorimeter was used, rather than the quasi-adiabatic instrumentation of the original investigation. Under similar electro-chemical conditions, the output of heat powers from experimental cells of Pd in 0.1 M LiODD20 and that from control cells of Pd in 0.1 M LiOHH2O and Pt in 0.1 M LiODD2O were all in close agreement with input heat powers using simple theory. These results show no anomalous excess heat, as claimed.
