Alpha decay and spontaneous fission of the ground-state and the isomeric state of Md were investigated with specific emphasis to identify the ground-state of the daughter nucleus Es. The decay studies were accompanied by measuring - coincidences. On the basis of the measured data an improved decay scheme of Md is proposed. Spontaneous fission half-lives of Md and Md were determined and the fission hindrance of the high spin ground-state (7/2) relative to the low spin isomeric state (1/2) was estimated.
