We report a search for the charmless baryonic decay B 0 → ppπ¯ 0 with a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 711 fb−1 containing (772±10)×106 BB pairs. The data was collected by the Belle experiment running on the Υ(4S) resonance at the KEKB e +e − collider. We measure a branching fraction B(B 0 → ppπ¯ 0 ) = (5.0 ± 1.8 ± 0.6) × 10−7 , where the first uncertainty is 3 statistical and the second is systematic. The signal has a significance of 3.1 standard deviations and constitutes the first evidence for this decay mode. We also search for the intermediate two-body decays B 0 → ∆+p¯ and B 0 → ∆¯ −p, and set an upper limit on the branching fraction: B(B 0 → ∆+p¯) + B(B 0 → ∆¯ −p) < 1.6 × 10−6 at 90% confidence level.
