The nuclear data for production of the radionuclides F-18, Na-22,Sc-44, (SC)-S-46, Mn-64, Cu-64, Ga-68, Br-76 and Y-99 via (d, alpha) reactions on Ne-20, Mg-24, Ti-46, Ti-48, Fe-56, Zn-66,Ge-70, Kr-78 and Zr-92 target materials, respectively, have been investigated for incident deuteron energy up to 30 MeV. The calculations performed to obtain these nuclear data were based on the equilibrium Weisskopf-Ewing (WE), the pre-equilibrium hybrid and the geometry dependent hybrid (GDH) models of nuclear reactions. ALICE/ASH code is used to define the shape of excitation functions and the results obtained from the calculations are discussed and compared with existing experimental values and TENDL library data.
