This article reports on the determination of the thermal cross-section of the 35Cl(n,p)35S reaction and its impact on stellar-nucleosynthesis calculations. The 35Cl(n,p)35S reaction cross-section was measured with thermal neutrons at the High Flux Reactor of the ILL (Grenoble) and with resonance neutrons at the linear accelerator GELINA of the IRMM (Geel). For the thermal cross-section, a precise value of 440 +/- 10 mb was obtained. In the region up to about 100 keV neutron energy, several resonances were determined with high resolution. These data were used to calculate the Maxwellian averaged cross-section at various temperatures.
