The strong concentration gradients produced during the loading process in palladium hydride are responsible for the well known difficulty in obtaining high loading ratios (H(D)/Pd≈1). Experiments on electrolytic loading of palladium with deuterium have been carried out in which the loading ratio was monitored through a four wire resistance technique. Preliminary results show that dynamic loading strongly affects the maximum ratio achievable.
