The effects of anomalous nuclei, Q‐nuclei, on stellar burning are examined. The baryon binding energies, beta‐decay properties, and thermonuclear reaction rates for the Q‐nuclei suggest they could catalyze a cycle in which four protons are combined to form a 4He nucleus. The properties required of the Q‐nuclei for them to solve the solar neutrino problem are determined. A solar modelling calculation was performed with Q‐nuclei included, and several interesting results therefrom are compared to observations. Finally the solar neutrino detection rates for 7 1Ga and 1 1 5In detectors, in addition to that for 3 7Cl, are estimated when Q‐nuclei are included in the solar burning.
