Title: First Compilation and Evaluation of Beta-Delayed Neutron Emission Probabilities and Associated Half-Lives for A ≤72 Nuclei

After a comprehensive compilation and evaluation of beta-delayed neutron (β -n) emission probabilities, P n, and associated half-lives for A ≤ 72 nuclei has been performed for the first time. The recommended values have been used to analyze the systematics of β -nemission in this region. The ratio P n/T 1/2 is better correlated with the Q-value of the β -n decay mode than the previously proposed Kratz-Herrmann Formula (KHF). Moreover, the recommended values are also compared with theoretical quasi-particle random phase approximation (QRPA) calculations.
