Alpha particle-induced nuclear reactions for the generation of radionuclides on natural silver targets were investigated with the stacked foil activation technique up to Eα = 40 MeV. Elemental excitation functions are reported for the reactions natAg(α,xn)108,109,110,111In, natAg(α,2pxn)105,106,110,111Ag and natAg(α,pxn)111mCd. The experimental cross-sections were compared with available data. Thick target yields have been deduced using the reported excitation functions.
