The multifragmentation of quasiprojectiles was studied in the reactions of a 28Si beam with 112Sn and 124Sn targets at projectile energies of 30 and 50 MeV/nucleon. The quasiprojectile observables were reconstructed using isotopically identified charged particles with Zf≤5 detected at forward angles. The nucleon exchange between projectile and target was investigated using the isospin and the excitation energy of the reconstructed quasiprojectile. For events with total reconstructed charge equal to the charge of the beam (Ztot= 14), the influence of the beam energy and target isospin on the neutron transfer was studied in detail. Simulations were carried out employing a model of deep inelastic transfer, a statistical model of multifragmentation, and a software replica of the FAUST detector array. The concept of deep inelastic transfer provides a good description of the production of highly excited quasiprojectiles. The isospin and excitation energy of the quasiprojectile were described with good overall agreement. The fragment multiplicity, charge and isospin were reproduced satisfactorily. The range of contributing impact parameters was determined using a backtracing procedure.
