Calculations of the material dependence of H-2(d, p)H-3 cross section and neutron-to-proton branching ratio of d+d reactions have been performed including a concept of the 0(+) threshold single particle resonance. The resonance has been assumed to explain the enhanced electron screening effect observed in the d+d reaction for different metallic targets. Here, we have included interference effects between the flat and resonance part of the cross section, which allowed us to enlighten observed suppression of the neutron channel in some metals such as Sr and Li. Since the position of the resonance depends on the screening energy that strongly depends on the local electron density. The resonance width, observed for the d+d reactions in the very hygroscopic metals (Sr and Li) and therefore probably contaminated by oxides, should be much larger than for other metals. Thus, the interference term of the cross section depending on the total resonance width provides the material dependences.
