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 quasiadiabatic instrumentation of the original investigation. Under similar electrochemical conditions, the output of heat powers from experimental cells of Pd in 0.1 M LiODD2O 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.
