To clarify:

Variance of good catalysts from the ideal 2Ry = 27.2 eV in ionization potential 
(the catalytic “hole”)

1)      Molybdenum              .07
2)      Potassium               .09
3)      Rubidium                .09

BTW - palladium has a fit at 27.77 eV (.57 variance) which is much further from 
an ideal catalytic value than moly. But moly is a poor proton conductor.

This may indicate that hydrogen absorption is more important than catalytic 

AFAIK – no one has ever tried the tactic of alloying or electroplating Pd onto 
Mu metal to optimize both goals.


… which brings to mind Claytor’s statement that the best alloy he has found for 
LENR was a Mu metal alloy. 

The use of Mu Metal as the active matrix for LENR could turn out to be the most 
valuable detail relative to spin and LENR if Claytor is correct … using “ 
Co-Netic” as the matrix alloy. Mu-metal is a nickel-iron alloy, and the 
proprietary alloy  in question, Co-Netic - has high added molybdenum.

The high permeability makes mu-metal useful not only for shielding against 
static and low-frequency magnetic fields but also in converting most of the 
energy of an anomalous self-generated field into heat. This is a "soft" 
magnetic material that saturates at low magnetic fields and that is the key to 
the coupling magnons into heat. The high number of inherent Rydberg levels in 
the ionization potential of this alloy could be the key. BTW – it should be 
noted that  Molybdenum is the closest Rydberg ionization fit to Mills theory of 
all metals. That could be another key to understanding. No other metal is as 
close to the precise value.
