Hi Robin, Your post makes me think that we would be facing a terrible crisis (in terms of nuclear terrorism) if it turns out that Mills, Holmlid and now Glass are accurate.
There could be a form of UHW – or “ultra heavy water” which is composed of oxygen and dense deuterium so that the molecu;e is both fuel and catalyst when arranged in the most efficient configuration with D+O as the explosive trigger.

Several approaches were used to >initiate fusion in deuterium. >The simplest and most direct proved to be in a stoichiometric mixture of >deuterium-oxygen Note also that this will create both atomic D and molecular water, which is apparently Mills' preferred catalyst, making it an ideal environment to shrink D, thus making DD reactions possible. >QUOTE: this is the only known work where fusion neutrons were produced by >chemical energy in a direct manner.
