Abstract Investigation of the hot reactions of the recoil metal nuclides in neutron irradiated solid ferrocene, ruthenocene and osmoscene shows that the retention decreases from ferrocene to osmocene. This observation is ascribed to the effects of recoil energy and the size of the hot zone. The large isotope effect observed between osmium isotopes and between ruthenium isotopes are explained as resulting from the effect of the Auger ionisation produced by internal conversion which takes place… CONTINUE READING
