Abstract: Exotic, neutron-rich proton-induced spallation products of Th-232 and U-238 obtained from the PS Booster ISOLDE facility have been investigated by gamma-gamma, alpha-gamma coincidence and spectrum-multiscaling measurements. A new method for the reduction of isobaric contamination enabled to study the unknown region beyond Pb-208 for the decay chain A = 217. A new isotope Bi-217 with a half-life of 98.5 +/- 0.8 s was discovered and its beta-decay studied. For the first time, a half-life value of 1.53 +/- 0.03 s for the alpha-decay of Po-217 was measured.
