Cold Transmutation of chemical elements – is a breakthrough, innovative technology for transforming one chemical element into another. Cheap elements into precious ones. It is a possibility of obtaining platinum group metals and other valuable elements, including gold, from cheap raw materials by artificial means. Ability to synthesise chemical elements will change the economy in a much more significant way, compared to even blockchain technology. Phenomenon of Cold Transmutation was discovered in recent decades. Our group is developing this technology; we have conducted hundreds of experiments and achieved phenomenal results. Among those results is obtaining of platinum group metals.
Precious metals that can be obtained through cold transmutation do not deteriorate or disappear. This is an objective value, which has a high cost in the modern world and will always be valued. Today, the time has come to take the next step – to master the technology for turning cheap elements into valuable elements and isotopes through low-energy nuclear reactions.

In the twentieth century, studies of nuclear transformations followed the path of the so-called nuclear fission reactions and they can also be called High Energy Nuclear Reactions (HENR). These reactions are caused by a powerful impact on atoms and are accompanied by radioactive radiation. This approach was consistent with the tasks set by the military, namely, to obtain technology for colossal explosions in order to create an atomic bomb and, subsequently, thermonuclear weapons.
In the process of development of nuclear weapons a scientific justification was formulated, stating the fact that for a nuclear transformation the atomic nuclei should be impacted by a high-energy flow. An atom can be split using a «large sledgehammer» – impacts of accelerated charged particles. The further use of thermal energy of radioactive fissile materials in operation of power plants followed the path already laid out by the military.
This technology caused the following problems:
Accelerators produce a lot of extremely dangerous radioactive waste. Nuclear accidents in Chernobyl and Fukushima have demonstrated that high-energy nuclear fission technologies bring high level of risks.
Prime cost of production
All the elements and isotopes produced in reactors are very expensive, because of the extremely high cost of the accelerators. For example, Californium-252 (252Cf) costs more than $10 million per gram, and only large centralized players can afford the production.
Reactors and accelerators produce mostly radioactive elements and isotopes. Gold produced from mercury transforms back into mercury or follows the decay chain, emitting hard radioactive radiation.
In the light of the existing problems caused by HENR reactions, nuclear reactions can only be studied at the level of states and super-corporations, so some scientists started to look for other solutions to the transmutation problem. It is about mastering low-energy nuclear reactions, both for obtaining energy and transmutation of chemical elements. However, the development of LENR-reactions didn’t comply with the goals and plans of governments. Therefore, the unofficial prohibition of relatively low-energy transmutation, formulated as far back as the eighteenth century during Newton’s lifetime, was supported in every possible way. In the modern world, LENR technologies are already recognized, but not many have proceeded to practical work.
Present technologies for obtaining valuable elements and isotopes
Extraction from natural deposits
Very often in nature there is no needed concentration of valuable elements, sufficient for economically profitable extraction. Especially it concerns platinum-group metals. For example, a number of platinum elements can be obtained as by-products in processing/refining of copper-nickel ores. The production of platinum metals is a result of multistage and complex purification, using chemical reagents and calcination. This is the most widely used industrial technology for obtaining valuable elements. The world leaders in production are South Africa and Canada.
High-energy nuclear reactions
High-energy nuclear reactions – are a technology used by the nuclear industry based on high-energy splitting of atoms. In essence, a target is bombarded by a beam of charged particles accelerated by electric and magnetic fields. Such impact results in nuclear transmutation in the targeted chemical element with emission of radioactive radiation and conversion of one element (its isotope) into another element (isotope). John Cockroft and Ernst Walton in 1951 received the Nobel Prize in Physics for their pioneer work on “Transmutation of atomic nuclei by artificially accelerated atomic particles».
However, this method’s applicability is significantly limited due to the high cost that starts from $10,000 per gram of a product and reaches tens of millions of dollars.
Separation of isotopes
Ever since differences in the isotope properties of chemical elements were discovered, the problem of their separation arose. Different methods of separation are used for different elements, but the most well-known method is gas centrifugation. Cascades of gas centrifuges separate isotopes into light and heavier ones. Exactly this method is used in uranium enrichment, allowing to use it in nuclear power engineering and creation of nuclear weapon. There are other methods, such as laser separation, separation with an accelerator, etc. For some isotopes, chemical enrichment is possible, which is based on difference in the speed of chemical reactions between heavy and light isotopes of a substance.
