A search for an anomalous n-p scattering from a polyethylene sample (CH 2) at 8 final energies between 64 eV and 2.5 keV was carried out. The scattering intensities were compared to that from a graphite (C) sample. The results were found to confirm our previous n-p results on H 2,O at a final energy of 24.3 keV where no n-p scattering anomaly was observed. The present results refute all proposed models attempting to explain the occurrence of any n-p scattering anomaly at keV neutron energies.
