Proton-rich Pt, Au and Hg nuclei have been populated following the bombardment of 92,94,96Mo targets by beams of 84Sr. Comparisons are made between the entry distributions associated with both low- and high-spin 173-177Au isomers, as well as the more stable Pt and Hg isobars, as a function of neutron number. This is the first time that a systematic study of such distributions has been conducted for nuclei near and beyond the proton dripline.
