Cumulative yields of 27 fission products have been determined in 229Th(n,f) by recoil catcher technique followed by gamma-ray spectrometry. Absolute fission yields were arrived at from the fission
rate measured by track etch counting method. Mass yields were obtained from the cumulative yields using the charge distribution
parameters reported in the literature. The values agree well with the reported values obtained both by physical and radiochemical
methods. The resulting asymmetric mass distribution shows strong fluctuation in the yields in the light and heavy wings with
a periodicity of five mass units.
