Description: A number of new isotopes in the iron region, both neutron-rich and proton-rich, have been produced at the Argonne FN tandem using heavy-ion beams. On the neutron-rich side, masses and beta-decay schemes were obtained, and the masses will be compared with various mass formulae used in nucleosynthesis calculations. Several heavy proton-rich N = Z odd-odd nuclei extending up from /sup 62/Ga were investigated with the aim of measuring the ft-values of their superallowed Fermi decays. The resulting ft-values will be compared with those found for the well studied lighter nuclei between /sup 14/O and /sup 54/Co. 11 references
