McKubre has stated that quiescence also occurs in Pd/D reactions which
tends to lead one to the conclusion that the reaction sites are
somehow altered.  It sounds like the knife edge is dulled and needs to
be resharpened.  I suspect that in the Ni/H reaction the surface area
is reduced by a melting and "smoothing" action in the nanopowder.
