As a part of a systematic study for predicting the most suitable projectile-target combinations for heavy-ion fusion experiments in the synthesis of 289-297Ts, we have calculated the transmission probability (\( T_{l}\)), compound nucleus formation probabilities (\( P_{CN}\)) and survival probability (\( P_{sur}\)) of possible projectile-target combinations. We have also studied the fusion cross section, survival cross section and fission cross sections for different projectile-target combination of 289-297Ts. These theoretical parameters are required before the synthesis of the super heavy element. The calculated probabilities and cross sections show that the production of isotopes of the super heavy element with Z = 117 is strongly dependent on the reaction systems. The most probable reactions to synthetize the super heavy nuclei 289-297Ts are worked out and listed explicitly. We have also studied the variation of \( P_{CN}\) and \( P_{sur}\) with the mass number of projectile and target nuclei. This work is useful in the synthesis of the super heavy element Z = 117.
