General Comments:

86As produced and identified by 1973Kr06 (also 1974KrZG,1975Kr08) in neutron-induced fission of 235U followed by chemical separation and half-life measurements. Earlier studies (1966To02,1967De01,1968To18,1968To19,1969WaZS) reported decays of mixed 85As and 86As activities by observing the decay of its descendants 86Se and 86Br, and by counting of delayed neutrons after separation of arsenic sample from other fission products of 235U. α 2-s half-life reported for this mixture most likely corresponded to 85As activity

T1/2 and %β-n measurements: 2013Ma22, 1993Ru01, 1978Cr03, 1973Kr06 (also 1974KrZG,1975Kr08)

Precise mass measurements: 2008Ha23 (Penning-trap method), 2008Su19 (also 2010Li02) (isochronous mass spectrometry)

2013Ma22: proton beam was provided by the Oak Ridge Isochronous Cyclotron (ORIC) at the HRIBF-ORNL facility. Target=238UCx. Fission fragments were ionized to charge state +1 then purified using H2S gas, a mass pre-separator and electromagnetic separation. The purified beams were then sent to the Low-energy Radioactive Ion Beam Spectroscopy Station (LeRIBSS) and implanted in a moving tape collector (MTC). Measured Eγ, Iγ, Eβ, βγ-coin, half-life of 86As g.s. using two plastic scintillation counters and four HPGe detectors. Comparison with the gross theory of β decay, the finite-range droplet model and the continuum quasiparticle random-phase approximation.

Q-value: S(2n)=9251 5, S(2p)=29260 400 (syst), Q(β-n)=5380 4 (2012Wa38)
