Charge Conjugation, a New Quantum Number G, and Selection Rules Concerning a Nucleon-Antinucleon System
Nuovo Cim. 3 (1956) 749;

Summary
A new quantum number is introduced which leads to selection rules concerning transitions between state with heavy particles number = 0. They are applied to the system nucleon-antinucleon; it is also shown that they can be extended to include the conservation of strangeness.
