Abstract

We study the decays B+→ ηcK+and B0→ ηcK0, where the ηcis reconstructed in the KS0K±π∓and K+K-π0decay modes. Results are based on a sample of 86 B B̄ pairs collected with the BABAR detector at the SLAC e+e-B Factory. We measure the product of branching fractions B(B+→ ηcK+) ×B(ηc→KK̄π)= (7.40±0.50±0.70)×10-5and B(B0→ηcK0) ×B(ηc→KK̄π)=(6.48±0.85±0.71) ×10-5, where the first error is statistical and the second is systematic, In addition, we search for B → ηcK events with ηc→2(K+K-) and ηc→ φφ and determine the ηcdecay branching fraction ratios B(ηc→(K+K-)) /B(ηc→KK̄π)=(2.3±0.7±0.6) ×10-2and B(ηc→φφ) /B(ηc→KK̄π)=(5.5±1.4±0.5) ×10-2.
