Publisher Summary This chapter presents a brief note on (n, 2n) reactions. The recent discoveries of Meitner and Hahn of new radioactive series produced by bombardment of uranium with neutrons have brought to light a new feature of nuclear reactions showing that a collision between a neutron and a heavy nucleus may not only result in the capture of a neutron with the formation of a heavy isotope but may under circumstances also result in the attachment of the neutron.
