In the present paper, we bear in mind metal clusters containing from a few tens through a few hundreds atoms, which are called microclusters. Since both microclusters and nuclei are systems of the finite number of particles, we may expect some similarities in their physical properties, in spite of the great difference in the interaction properties of their component particles. The purpose of the present paper is to point out first these similarities and then discuss possible directions of the cluster reaction research by following well-developed ways of the nuclear reaction research.
