The interplay and correlation between the NeMg and the competing NeMg reaction plays an important role for the interpretation of the NeMg reaction as a neutron source in the s- and n-processes. This paper provides a summary and new data on the -cluster and single-particle structure of the compound nucleus Mg and the impact on the reaction rate of these two competing processes in stellar helium burning environments.
