Time-of-flight spectra of the neutron capture events of $$^{142}$$Nd were measured using a spallation neutron source at the Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex. The first six resonances of $$^{142}$$Nd reported in a previous work were not observed. The experimental results and cross-search of resonance energies in nuclear data libraries suggested that resonances of impurity nuclide $$^{141}$$Pr have been mistakenly assigned as $$^{142}$$Nd in the previous experiment. To investigate the impact of non-existence of the resonances to the s-process nucleosynthesis model, the Maxwellian averaged neutron capture cross sections with and without the misassigned resonances were compared.
