Abstract

We study two-body B-meson decays to a charmonium state (eta(c), eta(c)(2S) or h(c)) and a K(+) or K(*0)(892) meson using a sample of 349 fb(-1) of data collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy B Factory at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. We measure B(B(0) -> eta(c)K*(0)) = (5.7 +/- 0.6(stat) +/- 0.9(syst)) x 10(-4), B(B(0) -> eta(c)(2S)K*(0)) < 3.9 x 10(-4), B(B(+) -> h(c)K(+)) x B(h(c) -> eta(c)gamma) < 4.8 x 10(-5) and B(B(0) -> h(c)K*(0)) x B(h(c) -> eta(c)gamma) < 2.2 x 10(-4) at the 90% C.L., and B(eta(c)(2S) -> K (K) over bar pi) = (1.9 +/- 0.4(stat) +/- 1.1(syst))%. We also measure the mass and width of the eta(c) meson to be m(eta(c)) = (2985.8 +/- 1.5(stat) +/- 3.1(syst)) MeV/c(2) and Gamma(eta(c)) = (36.3(-3.6)(+3.7)(stat) +/- 4.4(syst)) MeV.
