Recent reports of deuteron-deuteron (d-d) neutrons resulting from nuclear reactions in or at the palladium cathode of a deuterium glow discharge were investigated. The equipment, techniques, and experimental procedures are discussed in detail, as well as various possible mechanisms to produce such reactions. The results of this investigation do not confirm the presence of d-d reactions.
