Iron group elements (Sc, Mn, Fe, Co, Ni) are especially very important because structural material selection in design of fusion–fission reactors is very crucial. Obtained results from the nuclear reactions using structural materials can be used developing for these structural materials some isotopes. For this reason, in this study the cross sections of 45Sc(α,n)48V, 55Mn(α,n)58Co, 54Fe(α,n)57Ni, 59Co(α,n)62Cu, 62Ni(α,n)65Zn reactions have been calculated at 5-20 MeV energy ranges by using TALYS 1.8 and NON-SMOKER codes. Obtained results were compared experimental data from EXFOR database.
