The Trojan Horse Method has been applied to the 2 H( 9 Be, 6 Liα)n three-body reaction in order to investigate the 9 Be(p, α) 6 Li two-body reaction, which is involved in the study of light element abundances (lithium, beryllium and boron). A coincidence measurement was performed in order to identify the presence of the quasi-free mechanism in the three-body reaction, needed for the application of the method. The astrophysical S(E)-factor was extracted and compared to direct data. No
