Abstract Heavy isotopes with 90 ≤ Z ≤ 100 and 2Z – N = 43 ± 2, with some exceptions, are fissile.

Some remarks on the fissile isotopes
Abstract Data on the fission cross-section of actinides, obtained from the cross-section libraries, support the Fissile Rule. Some observations on the fissile properties of odd and even isotopes areExpand
The Common Properties of the “Fertile” Isotopes
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 fertileExpand
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 thisExpand
