The predicted capture rate in the Cl37 experiment for detecting solar neutrinos is calculated using the results of recent nuclear experiments and solar-model investigations. It is shown that additional experiments (e.g., with H2, Li7, B11, or ν-e scattering) are necessary to establish the relative contributions of the proton-proton chain and the CNO cycle to solar energy generation.
