A beam of 36/16S20 at 215 MeV was used to bombard a 300 ugcm-2 thick target of 208/82Pb126 in order to initiate deep-inelastic and multi-nucleon transfer reactions. The I-ray decay of the reaction products was studied using the CLARA array of escape suppressed germanium detectors which was coupled to the large-angular-acceptance magnetic spectrometer PRISMA, in which the velocity, mass, atomic number and kinetic energy of the reaction products was measured. Determination of the velocity and mass has allowed Doppler corrected γ-ray spectra to be obtained for each individual projectile-like nuclide to be produced. Seven neutron-rich isotopes of Cl have been populated and their decay by γ-ray emission has been studied. Decay schemes have been constructed and compared to the results of shell-model calculations. Previously unreported transitions have been observed in 38Cl, 40Cl, 41Cl and 42Cl. ___.
