Abstract: Having the potential for a clean new energy source, rt-plasmas of certain catalysts (Sr+, Ar+, K) with H formed at extraordinary low field strengths of about 1–2 V/cm. Time-dependent, extraordinarily fast H (25 eV), an excess power of 20 mW · cm−3, and characteristic K3+ emission confirmed the resonant nonradiative energy transfer of 3 · 27.2 eV from atomic hydrogen to K as the rt-plasma catalyst. The predicted very stable novel hydride ion H(1/4) with fractional principal quantum number p = 4 was observed spectroscopically at 110 nm corresponding to its predicted binding energy of 11.2 eV that further matched the 1H MAS NMR spectrum having an extraordinary upfield-shifted peak at –4.4 ppm with the elimination of any known assignment by FTIR.

Keywords: H catalysis; fast H; exothermic; novel hydride ions; upfield NMR peaks; FTIR; energy sources; power source; atomic hydrogen; plasma source; resonant energy transfer; rt-plasmas.
