Abstract. We have theoretically studied the systematics of 12C emission in superheavy nuclei with Z = 104–130. We have also compared the 12C decay half-lives with that of alpha decay and spontaneous fission. It is found that 12C decay half-lives are greater than that of alpha decay and spontaneous fission. The variation of logarithmic 12C decay half-lives with Zd0.6Q-1/2 is found to be exact straight line. The superheavy nuclei which are having shorter 12C half-lives are highlighted.
