To provide experimental activation cross sections for developing theoretical models and codes allowing calculation of probability of nuclear reactions and data for different practical applications, we perform a systematic study of light ion induced nuclear reactions on various target materials. In this work we studied the proton induced reactions on natural antimony. Excitation functions for formation of 118,119m,119g,121m,121g,123mTe, 117,118m,120m,122gSb and 117mSn were determined up to 36 MeV. The cross sections were measured with the activation method using a stacked target irradiation technique. The experimental cross section data of the investigated reactions were compared with values reported in literature and results of theoretical calculations provided by the TALYS code. From a fit to the newly measured data integral thick target yields were calculated and compared with experimental integral yield data reported in the literature.
