Nucleosynthesis processes involve reactions on several thousand nuclei, both close to and far off stability. The preparation of reaction rates to be used in astrophysical investigations requires experimental and theoretical input. In this context, two interesting aspects are discussed: (i) the relevant γ transition energies in astrophysical capture reactions, and (ii) the newly discovered Coulomb suppression of the stellar enhancement factor. The latter makes a number of reactions with negative…

Astrophysical relevance of γ transition energies
The relevant gamma energy range is explicitly identified where additional gamma strength must be located to have an impact on astrophysically relevant reactions. It is shown that folding the energy
