The breakup of Mg-25 has been studied using a beam of 180 MeV Mg-25 with a C-12 target. The main reaction channels investigated are the near-symmetric breakup into C-12 + C-13 and symmetric breakup into C-12 + C-12 following neutron transfer to the target. The symmetric breakup into two C-12 nuclei is observed to occur from states at high excitation in Mg-24. The yield is, however, about two orders of magnitude smaller than that observed in a similar experiment using a Mg-24 beam.
