The recent discovery of Carbon Enhanced Metal Poor (CEMP) stars leaves open questions as to how carbon, nitrogen, and oxygen (CNO) elements were enriched through the nucleosynthesis of primordial elements in the first stars. It has been proposed that the reaction sequence 6Li(α,γ)10B(α,d)12C may offer an alternative path to the traditional triple-α process, taking advantage of α-cluster configurations in the 10B and 14N systems.
