Decay properties and stability of heaviest nuclei with Z ≤ 132 are studied within the macro-microscopical approach for nuclear ground-state masses. We use phenomenological relations for the half-lives with respect to α-decay, β-decay and spontaneous fission. Our calculations demonstrate that the β-stable isotopes 291Cn and 293Cn with a half-life of about 100 years are the longest-living superheavy nuclei located on the first island of stability. We found the second island of stability of… Expand
