Reactions on Carbon-14
In inhomogeneous nudeosynthesis, a series of neutron captures is thought to lead to the production of 14C. We have studied the branching at 14C and have deduced the importance of the 14C(d, n)15N reaction which may be the dominant channel for the production of heavier elements.
