Preface. Low energy nuclear reactions

A quarter century has gone by since Martin Fleischmann and Stanley Pons, two chemistry professors from the University of Utah, USA, made a ‘historic’ announcement at a press conference in Salt Lake City in March 1989, where they claimed that they had observed sporadic episodes of massive amounts of ‘excess heat’, over and above what is electrically put into the electrolytic cell. They suggested that in their experiments, the Pd rod which was deployed as cathode got heavily ‘loaded’ with deuterium (D), thus forming PdD, from the LiOD electrolytic solution during electrolysis. They went on to postulate that the observed large amounts of ‘excess heat’, which is far beyond the chemical energy available, must be attributed to the occurrence of some sort of nuclear fusion reactions between the deuterons, d, embedded within the Pd metal matrix. This claimed occurrence of fusion reactions at room temperature soon came to be dubbed as ‘cold fusion (CF)’ ....
