Several new β-delayedproton precursors were produced in (HI; xn, yp) reactions at the LBL SuperHILAC and studied with the isotope separator OASIS. Unambiguous Z-identifications were obtained in all cases by observing characteristic x-rays coincident with the protons. Ground state spins were determined in favorable cases. The lowest 2+ levels in the rotational bands of126Ce and130Nd were confirmed.
