None Get secondary particle during step

I'm trying to extract the target nucleus following "hElastic" process.

I have a gas cavity filled various compositions of CH2, O2 and N2.

A 100 keV neutron beam is incident on this cavity.

I would like to be able to extract to recoiling nucleus during an hElastic process. I need to know if its C, N, O, or H.

Looking at cross sections, H is the most likely process at this energy range, but the others also occur.

During a step I check the secondary particle vector, and even though there is a hElastic process occurring, there is no secondary particle produced. I guess this sort of makes sense because it's simply a kinetic collision and no real secondary particle has been produced. The recoiling nucleus remains uncharged, and due to the size it can safely assume that all of the energy is deposited locally.

So now, if no secondaries are produced, how else can I find out what the recoiling nucleus is?
