Multinucleon transfer reactions between two heavy ions are an important tool for production and investigation of exotic neutron-rich nuclei, which are difficult to access by other methods. The 136Xe + 198Pt system is a candidate to efficiently produce neutron-rich nuclei around the neutron magic number N=126 for the KEK isotope separation project. In order to confirm this, measurements of the production cross sections with the large acceptance magnetic spectrometer VAMOS++ and de-excitation gamma rays from target-like fragments using the high efficiency germanium array EXOGAM at GANIL are reported. The measured isotopic distributions of the projectile-like fragments are compared with GRAZING calculations. The proton stripping channels show rough agreements between measurements and calculations. For the proton pick-up channels, the measured distributions are shifted toward the heavier masses and show enhanced cross sections in transfers of two or more protons.
