The abundance of 18F in Nova explosionsis an important issue in understanding this astrophysical phenomenon. For this reason it is necessary to study processes that produce or destroy this isotope in novae. Among these latter processes, the 18F(p,α) 15O stands as one of the main 18F destruction channels. We report here on the status of a new experiment recently performed using the CRIB apparatus of the Center for Nuclear Study of the Tokyo University based at the RIKEN Wako branch.
