Possible Fusion Reactions

The following criteria are considered for fusion reaction: The following are some important fusion reactions:
(1)   D  +T   ->   He4 (3.5  MeV) +   n   (14.1  MeV)
(2)   D  +D   ->   T   (1.01 MeV) +   p   ( 3.02 MeV) (50%)
(3)           ->   He3 (0.82 MeV) +   n   ( 2.45 MeV) (50%)
(4)   D  +He3 ->   He4 (3.6  MeV) +   p   (14.7  MeV)
(5)   T  +T   ->   He4            + 2 n  + 11.3  MeV
(6)   He3+He3 ->   He4            + 2 p
(7)   He3+T   ->   He4 + p + n           + 12.1  MeV  (51%)
(8)           ->   He4 (4.8  MeV) +   D   ( 9.5  MeV) (43%)
(9)           ->   He4 (0.5  MeV) +   n   ( 1.9  MeV)
                                     +   p   (11.9  MeV) (6%)
(10)  D  +Li6 -> 2 He4                   + 22.4  MeV
(11)  p  +Li6 ->   He4 (1.7  MeV) +   He3 ( 2.3  MeV)
(12)  He3+Li6 -> 2 He4            +   p  + 16.9  MeV
(13)  p  +B11 -> 3 He4                   +  8.7  MeV

COLD FUSION RESEARCH: MODELS AND POTENTIAL BENEFITS

ABSTRACT
Observations have been made of deuteron-deuteron fusion at room temperature during low-voltage electrolytic infusion of deuterons into metallic titanium or palladium electrodes. Neutrons with an energy of approximately 2.45 meV have been clearly detected with a sensitive neutron spectrometer at a rate of 0.002 n/s which cannot be accounted for by ambient neutron background variations. The reaction has been known to yield excess (or "latent") heat, where D + D yields 4He + 23.8 MeV. This paper examines the latest experimental results from several international researchers and summarize several new theories of nuclear model interactions that have been put forth to explain these intriguing results.
