Excitation functions were measured for nuclear reactions on natural Ti leading to the formation of the (43,44m,44g,46,47,48)Sc and48V isotopes up to 21 MeV deuteron energy using the stacked-foil technique. The measured excitation functions, the calculated thick target yields and activity calibration functions for the thin layer activation technique have been compared with the earlier literature data. The investigation with respect to their potential application as monitor reactions showed that the reactions on (nat)Ti could be recommended for monitoring deuteron beams, especially the (nat)Ti(d,x)48V reaction,in the energy range from 3 up to 20 MeV. However, to clear up the discrepancies in the literature and to compare the results with other monitor reactions, additional measurements are required.
