Experimentally measured excitation functions are presented for the 197Au(p,n)197mHg, 197Au(p,pn)196Au, 197Au(p,3n)195mHg, 197Au(p,p3n)194Au and 197Au(p,5n)193mHg nuclear reactions up to 70 MeV. The new data are compared with published values, where available. Based on cubic spline fits through the data of the most reliable experimental data sets, recommended excitation function curves are suggested for the above nuclear processes.
