As a part of our series of studies on charged particle induced reactions on various target materials, proton induced excitation functions on natural cobalt have been determined by using the stacked-foil technique. In these measurements the radionuclides 55,56,57,58Co, 51Cr, 52,54,56Mn and 56,57Ni have been identified. For the above mentioned nuclides the cross-sections were derived from the measured activities and were compared with the literature data and with the results of EMPIRE code calculations and tabulated values in the TENDL 2011 library (based on TALYS code calculations). The agreement with previous measurements and with theoretical values was acceptable.
