Problem

In 2010, a team of scientists from Russia and the U.S. reported creation of the first atom of element 117, which is not yet named and is denoted [117]. The synthesis involved the collision of a target of 97249Bk with accelerated ions of an isotope which we will denote Q. The product atom, which we will call Z, immediately releases neutrons and forms 117294[117]:
97249Bk + Q  →  Z  → 117294[117]+ 301n

What are the identity of isotope Q?
