Production of residual radionuclides in deuteron induced reactions is important for medical radioisotope production, accelerator technology and activation analysis. In the frame of a systematic study of deuteron induced reactions on different metals we present here the integral excitation functions of 93Nb(d, x)93mMo, 92m,91m,90Nb, 89,88Zr and 90mY up to 40 MeV, all measured for the first time. Results obtained with the nuclear model code ALICE-IPPE are compared to the experimental data and show an acceptable agreement.
