Cumulative yields of short-lived ruthenium isotopes in the thermal neutron induced fission of235U,235U and239Pu have been determined using a fast radiochemical separation technique followed by gamma spectrometry. The cumulative yields of107Ru and103Ru in233U (nth, f) and107Ru and109Ru in239Pu (nth, f) are determined for the first time. The measured cumulative yields are converted to chain yields assuming normal charge distribution systematics for comparison with the literature data on chain yields.
