Transmutation Effects observed with Heavy Hydrogen

  title={Transmutation Effects observed with Heavy Hydrogen},
  author={Marcus Laurence Elwin Oliphant and Paul Harteck and Rutherford},
WE have been making some experiments in which diplons have been used to bombard preparations such as ammonium chloride (NH4Cl), ammonium sulphate ((NH4)2SO4) and orthophosphoric acid (H3PO4), in which the hydrogen has been displaced in large part by diplogen. When these D compounds are bombarded by an intense beam of protons, no large differences are observed between them and the ordinary hydrogen compounds. When, however, the ions of heavy hydrogen are used, there is an enormous emission of… 

Attempts to Produce Helium 3 in Quantity

WITH reference to the results published by Harnwell, Smyth and Urry1 in which there is an apparent production of helium of atomic weight 3 in considerable quantities (10−5 c.c.) in a discharge run in

Evidence for a new type of disintegration produced by neutrons

The object of the present paper is to report upon a case of neutron-produced disintegration of a type which has not previously been observed. The nucleus disintegrated was that of carbon and the

Deuterium and Tritium

Deuterium (2H or D) the heavier, stable isotope of hydrogen (1H) occurs in nature, and is always present in all hydrogen-containing compounds. Deuterium oxide, known as heavy water, is the most

Mass spectrometry with accelerators.

Tandem Accelerator Mass Spectrometry, or AMS, has now made possible the accurate radiocarbon dating of milligram-sized carbon samples by ion counting as well as dating and tracing with many other long-lived radioactive isotopes such as (10)Be, (26)Al, (36)Cl, and (129)I.

Radiochemical Comparisons on Low Energy Nuclear Reactions and Uranium

The discovery of nuclear fission by Otto Hahn and Friedrich Strassmann was based on a very rare microanalytical result that provided the first realization that neutrons could fission uranium.

ABSTRACT The pioneering works of E. Rutherford related to radioactivity and nuclear science were contributions to physics, but they also had important implications for chemistry. Thus, in his early

Maruhn–Greiner Maximum of Uranium Fission for Confirmation of Low Energy Nuclear Reactions LENR via a Compound Nucleus with Double Magic Numbers

One of the most convincing facts about LENR due to deuterons of very high concentration in host metals as palladium is the measurement of the large scale minimum of the reaction probability depending

Metal Nanoparticles for Hydrogen Isotope Exchange

Since the mid-1990s Hydrogen Isotope Exchange (HIE), consisting in the direct exchange of protium with its isotopes, has witnessed an enormous development (Atzrodt et al. in Angew Chem Int Ed,

New machines designed to achieve this, and in one case to demonstrate the technical feasibility of an ultimate power–generating system, are under consideration.
