The possibility of using ultrapure liquid organic scintillator as a low-energy solar neutrino detector is discussed. The detector can be build at the LNGS underground laboratory as an upgrade of the CTF detector using already developed technologies.
Borexino prototype (CTF) results were used to obtain bounds on the lifetime of radiative neutrino decay. New lower limit is more than an order of magnitude stronger than the previous ones.
