The two processes result in a different set of nuclides being generated by neutron capture events. Both processes result in nucleo-synthesis. (The n-process, neutron process, is a mixture of s- and r-processes and is capable of synthesizing a wide variety of heavy elements outside supernovae).
With these processes, nucleo-synthesis is capable of producing almost every nuclide on the neutron rich side of the stability line, with the exception of a few stable proton-rich nuclides which cannot be produced by either the s-process or the r-process, such as ruthenium-96, which has an isotopic abundance of 5.5%. In this case, the inverse beta decaying technetium-96 and the stable molybdenum-96 screens the production of ruthenium-96. Such nuclides are probably produced by p-processes (proton capture). These stable proton-rich nuclides are in islands on the upper part of the Segre chart.
