The data on investigation of inelastic interactions of 16O nuclei in a hydrogen bubble chamber at an incident momentum of 3.25 A GeV/c are presented. Separate characteristics as fragments isotope composition and topological cross-sections of fragmentation channels are given. The processes of formation of light fragments and unstable nuclei, and the break-up of the 16O nucleus into multicharge fragments are investigated. A comparison between the experimental data and the calculations of the cascade fragmentation evaporation model (CFEM) is made. The observed singularities of the interactions point out the important role of the nucleus -cluster structure in the formation of the final products.
