We report the results of a search for the rare baryonic decays $B^0 \to p\bar{p}$, $\Lambda\bar{\Lambda}$, and $B^+ \to p\bar{\Lambda}$. The analysis is based on a data set of $31.7\times 10^6 B\bar{B}$ events collected by the Belle detector at the KEKB $e^+e^-$ collider. No statistically significant signals are found, and we set branching fraction upper limits ${\mathcal B}(B^0 \to p\bar{p}) < 1.2 \times 10^{-6}$, ${\mathcal B}(B^0 \to \Lambda\bar{\Lambda}) < 1.0 \times 10^{-6}$, and…

Charmless exclusive baryonic B decays
We present a systematical study of two-body and three-body charmless baryonic B decays. The branching ratios for two-body modes are in general very small, typically less than
Charmless three-body baryonic B decays
Motivated by recent data on B-> p pbar K decay, we study various charmless three-body baryonic B decay modes, including Lambda pbar pi, Sigma0 pbar pi, p pbar pi, p pbar Kbar0, in a factorization
Observation of B0→ΛΛ¯K0 and B0→ΛΛ¯K*0 at Belle
We study the charmless decays B -> Lambda(Lambda) over barh , where h stands for pi(+), K+, K-0, K*(+), or K*(0), using a 605 fb(-1) data sample collected at the Gamma(4S) resonance with the Belle
Observation of B+ --> plambdagamma.
We report the first observation of the radiative hyperonic B decay B+ --> plambdagamma, using a 140 fb(-1) data sample recorded on upsilom(4S) resonance with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric
