Study of the properties of nuclear isomers is a current research focus. We have studied the systematic 8+ isomeric levels, half-lives, deformation parameters, and reduced transition probabilities between  QUOTE  state of even-even 76Ni to 94Pd nuclei for N = 48 neutrons. The calculated half-lives and quadrupole moments are compared with the experimental values. Moreover, we have studied the systematic B (E2) values, intrinsic quadrupole moments and values of  QUOTE    as a function of atomic number (Z) for N = 48 neutrons.


Key words: Half-life, quadrupole moment, deformation parameter, reduced transition probability.
