A chart showing the abundances of the

naturally-occurring isotopes of neon.


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Neon (Ne) possesses three stable isotopes,
20
Ne,
21
Ne, and
22
Ne. In addition, 16 radioactive isotopes have been discovered ranging from
16
Ne to
34
Ne, all short-lived. The longest-lived is
24
Ne with a half-life of 3.38 minutes. All others are under a minute, most under a
second. The least stable is
16
Ne with a half-life of 122 (37) keV. See isotopes of carbon for notes about the measurement.
Standard atomic mass: 20.1797(6) u

Notes
The isotopic composition refers to that in air.
The precision of the isotope abundances and atomic mass is limited through variations. The given ranges should be applicable to
any normal terrestrial material.
Geologically exceptional samples are known in which the isotopic composition lies outside the reported range. The uncertainty in
the atomic mass may exceed the stated value for such specimens.
Commercially available materials may have been subjected to an undisclosed or inadvertent isotopic fractionation. Substantial
deviations from the given mass and composition can occur.
Values marked # are not purely derived from experimental data, but at least partly from systematic trends. Spins with weak
assignment arguments are enclosed in parentheses.
Uncertainties are given in concise form in parentheses after the corresponding last digits. Uncertainty values denote one standard
deviation, except isotopic composition and standard atomic mass from IUPAC which use expanded uncertainties.
