Abstract A “fertile” isotope is defined as a long-lived isotope from which, as a result of a (n,γ) reaction, we obtain a fissile isotope of a different element. It was found that most of the fertile

Some Observations on Spontaneous Fission Nuclei

In recent papers1,2 some nuclear properties related to fissile and fertile isotopes were discussed. All these nuclear properties were found to be correlated to the 2Z N values3 of the nuclei. In this
