Decay scheme, half life andQ EC value of88Tc were deduced from aβ-decay study. The neutron deficient nucleus88Tc was produced by the58Ni(32S,pn)88Tc reaction using beam energies of 100, 101 and 105 MeV. The ground- and isomeric states of88Tc were found to decay to88Mo with similar half lives of 5.8±0.2 and 6.4±0.8 sec. The most probable spins and parities of these states are 3+ and 6+, respectively, though the order in energy could not be determined. TheQ EC value was deduced to be 8.6±1.3 MeV.
