Excitation functions were measured for the natAg(d,x) 105,104Cd, 110 m,108m,106m,105g,104gAg and 101Pd, 105,101mRh reactions over the energy range 33–50 MeV by using the stacked foil activation technique and subsequent high-resolution gamma-spectrometry. We present the first experimental cross section data above 40 MeV for all of these reactions and the first experimental cross section data for natAg(d,x) 108m,104gAg and 105,103Rh. The experimental data are compared with results of the model calculations performed with the ALICE-D, EMPIRE-D theoretical nuclear reaction model codes and with the TALYS code results as available in the TENDL-2014 and -2015 on-line libraries.
