The differential decay rates of the processes J/ψ→pp̅π0, J/ψ→pp̅η, J/ψ→pp̅ω, J/ψ→pp̅ρ, and J/ψ→pp̅γ close to the pp̅ threshold are calculated with the help of the NN̅ optical potential. We use the potential which has been suggested to fit the cross sections of NN̅ scattering together with all other NN̅ experimental data available. The pp̅ nvariant mass spectra of J/ψ decays are in agreement with the available experimental data. The anisotropy of the angular distributions of the decays J/ψ→pp̅π0(η), which appears due to the tensor forces in the NN̅ interaction, is predicted close to the pp̅ threshold. This anisotropy is large enough to be investigated experimentally. Such measurements would allow one to check the accuracy of the model of NN̅ interaction, is predicted close to the pp̅ threshold. This anisotropy is large enough to be investigated experimentally. Such measurements would allow one to check the accuracy of the model of NN̅ interaction. Using our potential and the Green’s function approach we also describe the peak in the η′ π+ π- invariant mass spectrum in the decay J/ψ → γ η′ π+ π- in the energy region near the NN̅ threshold.
