We have measured fission and particle-evaporation cross sections for the nuclei Pt170-188 formed with the reactions Ni58,64 + Sn112-124. This represents the first systematic study of the decay of compound nuclei formed with heavy projectiles (Aproj12Atarget), and thus endowed with large angular momenta at relatively low excitation energies. Using a statistical model and a single set of input parameters, we have reproduced all the data.
