A part of the excitation function of the Th232(n,2n) reaction was determined by the foil activation method for neutron energies of 6.745, 6.938, 7.190, 7.448, 7.697, 7.944, 8.457, 8.975, 9.445, 9.934, and 10.450 MeV. Neutron flux density was measured using reactions U238(n,f), Fe56(n,p), and Al27(n,±). Activity of the Th231 residual nuclei was determined by their low energy transitions detected with a high purity Ge spectrometer. Results of this experiment are compared with renormalized literature data.
