The 24Mg + 24Mg reaction has been studied at the Legnaro Tandem at a CM bombarding energy of 45.7 MeV where a narrow and high spin resonance has been reported previously. The decay of the resonance into the inelastic and fusion-evaporation channels has been investigated. The ON and OFF resonance decay yields have been measured using, for the inelastic channels, the fragment spectrometer PRISMA and the γ array CLARA, and, for the fusion-evaporation channels, the Si array EUCLIDES and the γ array GASP. Strong resonant effects have been observed in the inelastic channels involving the 21+ and 41+ states of the 24Mg ground state band. Weaker effects are also seen in certain fusion-evaporation channels. The properties of the studied resonance are in agreement with molecular model predictions. It is also proposed that the narrow and high spin 24Mg + 24Mg resonance corresponds to the formation of a fast rotating and highly prolate deformed 48Cr after a Jacobi shape transition and just before fission.
