Moscovium-286 is a radioisotope of the chemical element Moscovium, which, in addition to the element-specific 115 protons, has 171 neutrons in the atomic nucleus, resulting in the mass number 286. The very short-lived, only artificially producible, unstable and therefore radioactive nuclide has no practical significance; dealing with 286Mc is for academic purposes only.
The discovery and detection of the isotope was first reported in 2022; the synthesis succeeded through the nuclear reaction:
