Activation cross-sections for deuteron induced reactions were measured on natural palladium up to 40 MeV with the activation method using a stacked-foil irradiation technique and high resolution gamma-spectrometry. Excitation functions are reported for the reactions producing the radionuclides 111Ag, 110mAg, 106mAg, 105Ag, 111mPd, 109Pd, 101Pd, 100Pd, 105Rh, 102gRh, 101mRh, 100Rh and 99gRh. Comparisons with earlier published data and theoretical results of ALICE-IPPE, EMPIRE and the TALYS codes are presented. Calculated yield curves and activity versus depth distributions are also presented for practical applications such as isotope production or thin layer activation.
