Radiosotope data

Further data for naturally occuring isotopes of boron are listed separately. This table gives information about some radiosotopes of boron, their masses, their half-lives, their modes of decay, their nuclear spins, and their nuclear magnetic moments.

Isotope Mass Half-life Mode of decay Nuclear spin Nuclear magnetic moment
8B 8.024607 0.770 s EC to 8Be; EC + a to 4He; EC + 2 a to n 2 1.0355
9B 9.013329 8 x 10-19 s 2a to 1H; p to 8Be 3/2 1.8006
12B 12.014352 0.0202 s b- to 12C; b- + 3a to n 1 1.0031
13B 13.017780 0.0174 s b- to 13C 3/2 3.17778

Notes

For further information about isotopes (outside WebElements) see Jonghwa Chang's (Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute) Table of the Nuclides. That package is for advanced users and is cloned at a number of sites (the most up to date version is the Korean site):
