|2.1: Decay Data|
|170Yb decay mode|
|On your site, the nuclide 70-Yb-170 is stated as being as stable.
From another source, I have seen 70-Yb-170 as being unstable with t1/2 of >=1.6E+17 years with decay by 2B-
The source from which the 70-Yb-170 nuclide is reported of 2B- decay is from the "Nuclear Wallet Cards" (January 2000, 6th edition) by Jagdish K. Tuli.
If this is the case then;
70-Yb-170 -> 72-Hf-170 (by 2B-)
72-Hf-170 -> 71-Lu-170 (by Electron Capture)
71-Lu-170 -> 70-Yb-170 (by Electron Capture)
Here, 70-Yb-170 is both the initial parent, and final daughter ?
Have you had any verification from the source concerning the
What was the misprint? The 2B- ?
|There is a typographical error the T1/2 and decay mode is for 176Yb and
not 170Yb. I am sorry for the mistake.
