A high-resolution study of the 32S(p,d)31S reaction shows a discrepancy with the current table of mass values. The 32S(p,d)31S reaction Q value is found to be - 12 817.8 1.5 keV, 45.6 keV more positive than the published value, which carried an 11-keV uncertainty. Similar studies of the (p,d) reaction on 23Na, 27Al, 33S, 34S, 35Cl, and 37Cl indicate no discrepancies with the Q values (of 1- to 2-keV accuracy) tabulated for these nuclei. Possible sources for the sulfur discrepancy are discussed. [NUCLEAR REACTIONS 23Na, 27Al, 32,33,34S, 35,37Cl(p,d), E=35 MeV, measured Q, deduced new value for the mass of 31S.]
