In stacked foil irradiations with an incident 50 MeV deuteron beam on highly enriched Cd-112 targets, the excitation functions for In-109,In-110g,In-111 and Ag-111,Ag-110g,Ag-106 were determined, relative to the monitor reactions Al-nat(d,x)Na-22,Na-24. The results were compared to the scarce literature values on enriched Cd isotopes. Through combination of reaction cross section data on all stable Cd isotopes listed in the on-line library TENDL-2013 (calculated with the TALYS 1.4 theoretical code) a comparison with our earlier study on Cd-nat is made. The possible production of In-111 through Cd-112(d,3n), as an alternative to Cd-112(p,2n), is discussed. (C) 2014 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
