Decay properties and stability of heaviest nuclei with Z≤132 are studied within the macro-microscopical approach for nuclear ground state masses and phenomenological relations for the half-lives with respect to α-decay, β-decay and spontaneous fission. We found that at existing experimental facilities the synthesis and detection of nuclei with Z>120 produced in fusion reactions may be difficult due to their short half-lives (shorter than 1 μs). The nearest (more neutron-rich) isotopes of… Expand
