Excitation functions were measured for production of 66,67Ga, 62,65,69mZn, 61,64,67Cu and 58Co radioisotopes in deuteron induced reactions on natural Zn up to 50 MeV by activation using stacked foil techniques. Detailed compilations were made of the earlier reported experimental cross-section and integral yield data. They are compared with the new values and theoretical calculations. The use of the measured formation cross-section for production of practically important radioisotopes of gallium and copper is discussed as well as the application of cross-section data of 65Zn in the field of wear monitoring by the thin layer activation method.
