An EC-branch in the decay of 27-s 263Db: Evidence for the isotope 263Rf
27-s 263Db was produced in the 249Bk ( 18O, 4n) reaction at 93 MeV. The activity was transported by a He/KCl-jet to the laboratory where it was collected for 15 min and then subjected to a chemical separation specific for group-4 elements. The activity was dissolved in 0.5 M unbuffered α-HiB and eluted from a cation-exchange column. The effluent was made 9 M in HCl and group-4 tetrachlorides were extracted into TBP/Cyclohexane which was evaporated to dryness on a Ta disc. The Ta discs were assayed for α and SF activity. A SF activity with a half life on the order of 20 min was observed and assigned to the nuclide 263Rf. It is formed by electron-capture decay of 263Db with a decay branch of 3+4-1%.
