IT has been shown recently by Chadwick and Goldhaber1, and by Fermi and his collaborators2, that some light nuclei, particularly lithium and boron, are disintegrated by slow neutrons. In the case of boron, the mass-energy relations seemed best satisfied by assuming a disintegration into three particles1. The simplest reaction, namely: should, according to the accepted masses of the particles, release some two million e. volts more energy than is observed. Unless the existence of new isotopes… Expand
