Abstract The reaction Sb(n,p)Sn was studied at 14 Mev and over the ranges 0 to 3 Mev excitation and angles of 0 to 60 deg . It ts demonstrated that the forward- peaked contribution is relatively concentrated at high proton energy and gives rise to most of the spectral group structure, and that the angle-insensitive pontion has a smooth spectrum rising with decreasing proton energy. The isotropic portion does not fit the theoretical compound nucleus spectrum but is consistent with a process of incomplete compound nucleus formation. Total cross- section for the ranges of energy and angle studied is (22 plus or minus 4) mb, of which 20% is the anisotropic contribution.
