A $$beta$$-decay unstable isomer with a half-life of 14.1 y at 264 keV in $$^{113}$$Cd is a branching point in the $$s$$ process, from which a weak branch reaches to a rare tin isotope $$^{115}$$Sn whose astrophysical origin has been an open problem. We have measured $$gamma$$ rays decaying to the ground state or the isomer in the $$^{112}$$Cd($$n,gamma$$)$$^{113}$$Cd reaction using high-energy resolution detectors in conjunction with a time-of-flight method. The relative production ratios of the isomer to the total following the neutron capture reactions on $$^{112}$$Cd have been evaluated in an energy region of up to 9 keV, and the spin and parity of several resonances have been assigned.
