Abstract

In this brief review we discuss the possibility of studying the solar interior by means of neutrinos, in the light of the enormous progress of neutrino physics in the last few years. The temperature near the solar center can be extracted from Boron neutrino experiments as: $ T= (1.57 \pm 0.01) 10^7 K$. The energy production rate in the Sun from pp chain and CNO cycle, as deduced from neutrino measurements, agrees with the observed solar luminosity to about twenty per cent. Progress in extracting astrophysical information from solar neutrinos requires improvement in the measurements of $^3He+$ \\$^4He \to ^7Be+\gamma$ and $p+^{14}N \to ^{15}O+ \gamma$.
