The masses of the astrophysically relevant nuclei 25Al and 30P have been measured with a Penning trap for the first time. The mass-excess values for 25Al ( Δ=−8915.962(63) keV) and 30P ( Δ=−20200.854(64) keV) obtained with the JYFLTRAP double Penning trap mass spectrometer are in good agreement with the Atomic Mass Evaluation 2012 values but ≈ 5-10 times more precise. A high precision is required for calculating resonant proton-capture rates of astrophysically important reactions 25Al (p,γ)26Si and 30P(p,γ)31S. In this work, Q(p,γ)=5513.99(13) keV and Q(p,γ)=6130.64(24) keV were obtained for 25Al and 30P, respectively. The effect of the more precise values on the resonant proton-capture rates has been studied. In addition to nuclear astrophysics, the measured QEC value of 25Al, 4276.805(45) keV, is relevant for studies of T = 1/2 mirror beta decays which have a potential to be used to test the Conserved Vector Current hypothesis.
