Abstract: We present updated measurements of the branching fractions for B-0 meson decays to eta K-0, eta eta, eta phi, eta omega, eta K-'(0), eta(')eta('), eta(')phi, and eta(')omega, and branching fractions and CP-violating charge asymmetries for B+ decays to eta pi(+), eta K+, eta(')pi(+), and eta K-'(+). The data represent the full data set of 467x10(6) BB pairs collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy e(+)e(-) collider at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. Besides large signals for the four charged B decay modes and for B-0 ->eta K-'(0), we find evidence for three B-0 decay modes at greater than 3.0 sigma significance. We find B(B-0 ->eta K-0)=(1.15(-0.38)(+0.43)+/- 0.09)x10(-6), B(B-0 ->eta omega)=(0.94(-0.30)(+0.35)+/- 0.09)x10(-6), and B(B-0 ->eta(')omega)=(1.01(-0.38)(+0.46)+/- 0.09)x10(-6), where the first (second) uncertainty is statistical (systematic). For the B+->eta K+ decay mode, we measure the charge asymmetry A(ch)(B+->eta K+)=-0.36 +/- 0.11 +/- 0.03.
