    This paper reports on the results of measurements of the (n,p) and (n,alpha) reactions on 26Al and 36Cl., in the neutron energy region up to 140 keV and 350 keV, respectively. The experiments were carried out at the GELINA neutron facility of the IRMM (Geel, Belgium). For both reactions several resonances could be identified which were never observed before. Reaction rates were calculated from the obtained cross section data and compared with other experimental and theoretical values.
