The radionuclide vanadium-48 (T1/2 = 16 d, β+= 49.5 %) could be employed to positron emission tomography. In this Study, 48V excitation function for the nat/49/48Ti(p,x)48V and the 48Ti(d,2n)48V nuclear reactions were calculated by ALICE/ASH code. Then recommended thickness of the targets according to the SRIM-2010
code was calculated; consequently, the theoretical integral yields were computed for all reactions by the computer software.
As a result, the 48Ti(p,n)48V reaction was determined as the best reaction. Ti target was prepared by sedimentation method to produce 48V throughout accelerator proton bombardment.
