Excited states in the extremely neutron-deficient isotope Hg-172 have been established for the first time. The Ru-96(Kr-78,2n) reaction was employed to populate excited states in Hg-172 with a cross section sigma approximate to 15 nb. The highly selective recoil-decay tagging (RDT) technique was used to obtain clean in-beam gamma-ray spectra for Hg-172. The yrast ground-state band has tentatively been established up to I=6 h. The data have been interpreted within the framework of total Routhian surface and quasiparticle random phase approximation calculations.
