Selected charged particle induced reactions are used to monitor the actual parameters of bombarding particle beams. One of these reactions is natTi(d, x)48V for which recommended cross section data are available in one of the databases of the International Atomic Energy Agency (http://www-nds.iaea.or.at/medical/). This database contains all together 22 monitor reactions for practical applications covering energy up to 100 MeV depending on the reactions. In the case of the natTi(d, x)48V reaction recommended data are given in the 9-50 MeV energy interval because at the time of creation not precise enough experimental data were available to recommend values from threshold up to 9 MeV. In this work we measured the excitation function in this relevant low energy range, collected new experimental data and suggest high confidence recommended values for the missing low energy part of the monitor excitation function.
