Excitation functions of 3He-particle induced nuclear reactions on natural cadmium were measured using the standard stacked foil technique and high resolution gamma-ray spectroscopy. From their threshold energies up to 27 MeV, cross-sections for natCd(3He,xn) 117m,113,111,110Sn, natCd(3He,xnp) 117m,g,116m,115m,114m,113m,111,110m,g,109,108,107In, and natCd(3He,X)115g,111mCd reactions were measured. The nuclear codes TALYS, and EMPIRE-3,1 were used to describe the formation of these products. The present data were compared to theoretical results and to the available experimental data. Integral yields for some important radioisotopes were determined.
