Excitation Russian Federation functions of 3He-induced nuclear reactions producing 43,44m,46,47,48Sc, 48V, 48,49,51Cr were measured up to 36 MeV bombarding energy by using the stacked-foil technique on different medium-energy accelerators. The results were compared with the data (cross-section, thick-target yield, activity-distribution functions, ...) from the literature, model calculations and other measurements. Earlier measurements at higher energies up to 135 MeV are also plotted to complete the database for 3He-reactions on natural Ti. The new experimental and literature data were compared with the predictions of different model calculations for the 48V producing reactions. The selected experimental data sets were fitted using different methods to obtain recommended values. The measurements and compilation proved, that the 3He induced reactions on natural titanium, especially those leading to 48V and 48Cr are especially useful for monitoring, for activation analysis and for Thin Layer Activation (TLA) purposes. Production of 48V as a radiotracer is also recommended.
