In stacked foil irradiations with an incident 50 MeV deuteron beam on highly enriched 112Cd targets, the excitation functions for 109,110g,111In and 111,110g,106Ag were determined, relative to the monitor reactions natAl(d,x)22,24Na. 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 natCd is made. The possible production of 111In through 112Cd(d,3n), as an alternative to 112Cd(p,2n), is discussed.
