    Does one mean p-p cycle, as opposed to CNO?

    If so, http://csep10.phys.utk.edu/astr162/lect/energy/ppchain.html

    also of interest - http://csep10.phys.utk.edu/astr162/lect/energy/cno-pp.html

    pp-chain - http://zebu.uoregon.edu/~rayfrey/321/lecture5.pdf

    or does one mean p-process as in


    or try this paper - The p-process in supernovae - by Woosley, S. E.; Howard, W. M.
    The p process in type II supernovae: current status It was current in 2003. Best to use 'save target as'.

    http://www.astro.princeton.edu/~tremaine/ast541/johnson.ppt - good overview of various process in stellar nucleosynthesis

    One can also search Google with "supernovae","p-process" or "p-process in supernovae".
