## New evidence for chemical fractionation of radioactive xenon precursors in fission chains

Mass-spectrometric analyses of Xe released from acid-treated U ore reveal that apparent Xe fission yields significantly deviate from the normal values. The anomalous Xe structure is attributed to hemically ractionated ission (CFF), previously observed only in materials experienced neutron bursts. The least retentive CFF-Xe isotopes, $^{136}\mathrm{Xe}$ and $^{134}\mathrm{Xe}$, typically escape in 2:1 proportion. Xe retained in the sample is complimentarily depleted in these isotopes. This nucleochemical process allows understanding of unexplained Xe isotopic structures in several geophysical environments, which include well gasses, ancient anorthosite, some mantle rocks, as well as terrestrial atmosphere. CFF is likely responsible for the isotopic difference in Xe in the Earth's and Martian atmospheres and it is capable of explaining the relationship between two major solar system Xe carriers: the Sun and phase-Q, found in meteorites.

## Partial cross sections of the 92Mo(p,γ) reaction and the γ strength in 93Tc

Background: $^{92}\mathrm{Mo}$ is the most abundant nucleus of the $p$ nuclei, with an isotopic abundance of more than 14 %. The $\ensuremath{\gamma}\text{-process}$ nucleosynthesis is believed to produce $^{92}\mathrm{Mo}$ but fails to explain its large abundance, especially with respect to the other $p$ nuclei produced in the same stellar environment. Further studies require precise nuclear models for the calculation of reaction cross sections.
