Abstract The neutron-proton pairing interaction lambda between the last odd neutron and the last odd proton in the outermost neutron and proton shells of an odd-odd nucleus was estimated from nuclear masses in the regions just beyond Z = 20, N = 20, and just beyond Z = 40, N = 50. Behavior of lambda in these two regions and in the heavy element region Z) 82. N) 126. as estimated by Ghoshal and Saxena. is discussed. It was found that the behavior of lambda may be understood in terms of a simple jj-coupling shell model. According to this model, lambda arises from the spin-independent part of the twobody force and is proportional to (2j/sub 1/ + 1 -- 2z)(2j/sub 2/ + 1 -- 2n), where z is the odd number of protons in the outermost proton shell j/sub 1/ and n is the odd number of neutrons in the outermost neutron shell j/sub 2/ of the odd-odd nucleus.
