It is theoretically shown that an attractive effective potential is generated via optical phonon exchange between two quasi-free, different particles in deuterated Pd which, in turn, enhances the probability of their nuclear fusion reaction. Mechanisms, that may be responsible for extra heat production and nuclear isomer formation, are also discussed. Creation of 4He pairs due to the significantly increased probability of the p + 7Li 24He + 17.35 MeV and d + 6Li 24He + 22.37 MeV nuclear reactions is predicted. Some of the basic questions of fusion reactions in solids seem to be successfully explained.
