The independent fission product yields obtained from the fast fissions of 232Th, 233U, 235U, 238U, 239U, 240Pu, and 241Pu were found to be correlated to the 2Z-N values of these isotopes. Examples of these correlations are presented. In these examples, the chain yields of 135Xe and 149Sm, the important isotopes in the dynamics of nuclear reactors, are included. The correlations obtained can serve to predict the independent fission product yields from important actinides that have no experimental results so far. These correlations can also serve to point out errors in current evaluated yields.
