The elastic scattering cross section of (MO)-M-92(alpha,alpha)Mo-92 has been measured at energies of E-c.m. approximate to 13, 16, and 19 MeV in a wide angular range. The real and imaginary parts of the optical potential for the system Mo-92-alpha have been derived at energies around and below the Coulomb barrier, The result fits into the systematic behavior of alpha -nucleus folding potentials. The astrophysically relevant Ru-96(gamma,alpha)Mo-92 reaction rates at, T-9 = 2.0 and T-9 = 3.0…

TLDR
The main part of the review focuses on the nuclear uncertainties involved in the determination of the astrophysical reaction rates required for the extended reaction networks used in nucleosynthesis studies.
