We show that the recently discovered reaction of inelastic neutron acceleration by isomeric nuclei (INNA-reaction) can cause a considerable change in the abundances of elements produced by the pulsed s-process. We have chosen 85mKr branching to demonstrate this effect in more detail.

Keywords: nuclear reactions, nucleosynthesis, INNA-reaction.
