<p>A search has been made for the <sup>6</sup>He+<sup>6</sup>He and alpha + <sup>8</sup>He decay of the molecular rotational band in <sup>12</sup>Be using the <sup>10</sup>Be(<sup>14</sup>C,<sup>12</sup>Be*)<sup>12</sup>C reaction at 88.5 MeV. Although the alpha + <sup>6</sup>He decay of <sup>10</sup>Be was observed in the data set there is no evidence for the breakup of <sup>12</sup>Be. The cross-section upper limits for the <sup>10</sup>Be(<sup>14</sup>C,<sup>6</sup>He <sup>6</sup>He)<sup>12</sup>C and <sup>10</sup>Be(<sup>14</sup>C,alpha <sup>8</sup>He)<sup>12</sup>C reactions are 50 and 300 nb respectively.</p
