Abstract

We analyze the interaction of antineutrinos with water particles in electrochemical apparatuses. The analysis is based on the postulation that low-energy neutrinos readily interact with water molecules under a scalar auxiliary field, and the reaction products assist electrochemical reactions to generate output current. We formulate the output current of neutrino interaction in the electrochemical apparatus with an electrochemical half-cell model under the postulated influence of weak interaction. Experiments of two types are considered; they are reactions by either environmental neutrinos or nuclear-reactor-neutrino irradiation. The output currents are treated to be generated by hydrogen ions and oxygen gas with an electrochemical half-cell model. The same electrochemical parameters are applied to analysis, and it leads to successful reproduction of experimental data. The agreement suggests that there may be electrochemical reactions that are assisted by weak interaction.
