Decay product

a decay product is the product (result) of decay.

In physics - in particular nuclear physics - for example, it acts around radioactive decay or splitting an atomic nucleus into another or several smaller atomic nuclei and simultaneous production of radioactivity. The decay products are then that or the developing atomic nuclei as well as the produced radioactive elementary particles.

In biology decay products, thus the result of cellular decay, become as Detritus (lat. detritus the waste) designates.
