The short-lived, radioactive isotope moscovium-290 has been observed as a direct decay product of the artificially generated nuclide tennessine-294; synthetic production has not yet succeeded. At 650 milliseconds, the nuclide 290Mc has the longest known half-life of any Mc isotope . Accordingly, the atomic mass of the element Moscovium is given as .

Isotones and IsobarsThe following table shows the atomic nuclei that are isotonic (same neutron number N = 175) and isobaric (same nucleon number A = 290) with Moscovium-290. Naturally occurring isotopes are marked in green; light green = naturally occurring radionuclides.
|OZ||Isotone N = 175||Isobar A = 290|
