We performed an experiment of the 21Na(αp)24Mg reaction for the first time by a direct measurement with a thick target method. The studied energy was covered for high temperature conditions in X-ray bursts and core-collapse supernovae. The 21Na(αp)24Mg reaction could make a branch of the extended αp-process and could be important to understand the production of 22Na during the hydrogen explosion at high temperature, like in X-ray bursts, and the 44Ti production from core-collapse supernovae.
