Recent accurate data obtained for the isomeric cross section of the 197Au(n, 2n) reaction provides an effective opportunity to consider the question of the effective moment of inertia of the nucleus within a consistent model analysis of all available reaction data for the 197Au target nucleus. Moreover, since the corresponding model assumptions are better validated by analysis of the data above 20-30 MeV where only several data with large uncertainties are known, the usefulness of further measurements to be performed at large-scale facilities as SPIRAL-2 and n_TOF, for incident energies up to 40 as well as 100 MeV, are underlined.
