Abstract

From a sample of 332000 BB» pairs produced in e+e- annihilations at the (4S) resonance we derive upper limits for the branching fractions for the decays B-'pp»- and B»0'pp»+- in several final-state momentum configurations. The results do not confirm recently reported observations of charmless B decays.
