In this paper we present a large-scale sensitivity study of reaction rates in the main component of the s process. The aim of this study is to identify all rates, which have a global effect on the s process abundance distribution and the three most important rates for the production of each isotope. We have performed a sensitivity study on the radiative ¹³C-pocket and on the convective thermal pulse, sites of the s process in AGB stars. We identified 22 rates, which have the highest impact on the s-process abundances in AGB stars.
