© 2022 Elsevier LtdThis article aims at providing new cross section data from empirical formulas for the (n,d) reactions of which experimental measurements at 14–15 MeV energy are not available or limited. If the experimental data for a nuclear reaction at a given energy are scarce, theoretical calculations and also developing empirical formulas have a critical importance. Here, we propose a new empirical formula of (n,d) reactions for analysis of the relationship between the experimental data and the parameters of empirical formula. The present formula was obtained by using the non-elastic Flerov and Talyzin expression to calculate (n,d) cross sections at 14–15 MeV. Due to the good overall agreement with the measured cross sections, our empirical formula with polynomial fitting model including asymmetry parameter can be useful in planning new experiments of (n,d) reactions for energies around 14 MeV.
