Abstract Fast automated on-line and quasi-on-line radiochemical techniques are applied to search for new isotopes, to measure their decay characteristics and to study the cross sections of the heaviest most neutron-rich actinide isotopes in reactions of 16,18O and 22Ne projectiles with 254Es as a target. The measured yields for isotopes up to lawrencium-260 are three or more orders of magnitude higher than in any other reaction used so far. A comparison with data for similar transfers from 248Cm targets is made. Transfer cross sections are extrapolated for the production of unknown, neutron-rich isotopes of elements 101 through 105, and the unique potential of 2...
