We study the nucleosynthesis in accretion disk around compact object. When matter falls towards the compact object, due to interactions in nuclear species nuclear energy is released in the high temperature. In some region of parameter space nuclear energy becomes comparable or higher to the energy release due to the viscous effect of the disk. In those regions disk may become unstable. Also the changes of nuclear abundance in the disk are significant.
