Abstract The properties of nuclei from oxygen to nickel near the neutron-stability boundary are studied in the self-consistent theory of finite Fermi systems. The position of this part of the neutron-stability boundary is calculated and found to be in agreement with available experimental data. The stability of the 266 nucleus with respect to decay through the {sup 24}O + 2n channel is investigated. The magic properties of the neutron numbers N = 28, 40, and 50 are analyzed. The numbers N = 40 and 50 are shown to remain magic up to the neutron-stability boundary, while the number N = 28 loses its magic properties beginning from the {sup 46}Ar nucleus. Calculations show that boundary nuclei have a neutron cloud of thickness about 2 fm. The role of nuclei with A = 20 - 70 in rapid nucleosynthesis is considered. 27 refs., 3 figs., 3 tabs.
