An experimental study of the 92Mo(n,p)92Nbm, 92Mo(n,α)89Zr, 95Mo(n,p)95Nbm, 95Mo(n,p)95Nb, 96Mo(n,p)96Nb, 97Mo(n,p)97Nb, 98Mo(n,p)98Nbm, 98Mo(n,a)95Zr, 100Mo(n,α) 97Zr, and 92Mo(n,2n)99Mo activation reaction cross sections were carried out in the 7-15 MeV energy range at the CV28 compact cyclotron at Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt, Braunschweig. The PTB TOF spectrometer with a D(d,n) source is well suited for this difficult energy range were significant correction for non-monoenergetic neutrons have to be applied. Gamma-ray spectrometry was applied for the measurements of the activity of the reaction products.
