Lead perchlorate, part of the OMNIS supernova neutrino detector, contains two nuclei 208Pb and 35Cl that might be used to study nucleon decay. Both would produce signatures that will make them especially useful for studying less-well-studied neutron decay modes, e.g., those in which only neutrinos are emitted.
