The properties of the low-lying states of the argon isotopes Ar211839, Ar221840, Ar231841, and Ar241842 are predicted by use of both the (πd32)-2(νf72)n model and the extended (πd32)-2(νf72, νp32)n description. The n-n, p-p, and n-p interactions are taken from data on neighboring nuclei. With the extended model, reasonable agreement with experiment is obtained for the spectra. E2 and M1 transitions rates are examined. All M1 transitions are predicted to be substantially inhibited, as is observed experimentally. Several experiments are suggested.
