The asymptotic normalization coefficients for the virtual decay 9C → 8B + p have been determined by measuring the cross-section of the 8B(d, n)9C reaction in inverse kinematics at 14.4 MeV/u, using the RIPS facility. The deduced astrophysical S factor S18 of the 8B(p, γ)9C capture reaction in the center of mass energy range 1-100 keV is S18 = 45 ± 13 eV b.
