Abstract : An Isotope Index, ordered by atomic number (Z) and subordered by mass number (A), precedes the main table. It contains all stable nuclei, radioisotopes, and isomers that appear in the Table of Isotopes. (R-rated isotopes - those identified only in nuclear reactions - do not appear in the Isotope Index.) In addition to the Isotope designation, the Index includes the natural abundance, half-life, class (certainty of identification), and the number of the page on which the tabular data entry is found in the main table. The main table is ordered by mass number and subordered by atomic number. For each mass number there is an abbreviated mass-chain decay scheme, showing the adopted half-lives, spin-parity assignments, and decay energies (Q-values) for the Isobars, and the decay relationships between them. Following the mass-chain decay scheme, tabulated data and detailed nuclear level schemes are given for individual isotopes.
