Total Kinetic Energy—Mass distributions of fission-like fragments for the reactions of \(^{22}\)Ne, \(^{26}\)Mg, \(^{36}\)S, \(^{48}\)Ca, \(^{58}\)Fe and \(^{64}\)Ni ions with actinides leading to the formation of superheavy compound systems with \(Z=108\)–120 at energies near the Coulomb barrier have been investigated. It was found that the relative contribution of QF to the capture cross section mainly depends on the reaction entrance channel properties, but the features of asymmetric QF are determined essentially by the driving potential of composite system. A possible alternative pathway in the production of new superheavy elements near the “island of stability” is represented by the “inverse” quasifission or deep-inelastic reactions in the collision of \(^{136}\)Xe with actinide targets.
