Abstract A unitarity relation is derived for the nucleon-nucleus scattering amplitude which displays the reaction mechanisms associated with the absorptive part of the single-scattering optical potential. The reactions implicit in the absorption are nucleon pickup and knockout. The transition amplitudes for these processes are extracted from the unitarity relation and their accuracy is discussed.
