The excitation function of the 186W(d,2n)186Re reaction was evaluated and the thick target yield (TTY) of the therapeutic radioisotope 186Re was calculated. The available experimental data from the EXFOR library and literature were analyzed and corrected with the g-ray branching ratio, radioactive decay constant and standard cross sections. The excitation function of the 186W(d,2n)186Re reaction was recommended below 50 MeV on basis of the least-squares fit with polynomial and the theoretical calculation with TALYS code. The TTY was calculated using the recommended excitation function of the 186W(d,2n)186Re reaction.
