Hi I am by no means an expert nor have I even ever taken a class on physics. I have always been interested on such subjects however. Here is my question. I am doing research on electrolysis and found something interesting on a wikipedia with regards to cold fusion. "Cold fusion revolves around the idea that palladium or titanium might catalyze fusion stemmed from the special ability of these metals to absorb large quantities of hydrogen, including its deuterium isotope, the hope being that the deuterium atoms would be close enough together to induce fusion at ordinary temperatures" Now the atomic number for Ti is 22 and Pd 46 22 x2 +2 the atomic number for Plutonium is 94 or 46 x2 +2. In 1927, Swedish scientist J. Tandberg stated that he had fused hydrogen into helium in an electrolytic cell with palladium electrodes. Using my knowledge of elctrolysis i know that + charge creates hydrogen and - creates oxygen. If you charged Heavy water with a - heavy charge via electrodes made of plutonium would the excess heat generated from heavy hydrogen absorbtion by the plutonium and the continuous reduction of oxygen creating either deuterium or helium? I believe I may be going in the right direction but lack of expertise on a few fronts I may be wrong please help.
