The isotope 102254 was synthesized by the nuclear reactions Am243(N15, 4n) 102254 and U238(Ne22, 6n) 102254. The 102254 was identified chemically by its daughter product Fm 100 250 . The cross sections of the reactions were plotted versus the energies of the bombarding ions. It was shown that 102254 undergoes alpha decay with period ∼50 sec. This result does not agree with [1], in which the value found was T1/2=3 sec.
