Analyzing the available theoretical information on the excitation functions for the reaction 68 Zn(p,2p) 67 Cu, 70 Zn(p,α) 67 Cu and 64 Ni(α,p) 67 Cu. These data could now be used for calculation of production yield using SRIM code for stopping power of 67 Cu via a given reaction over a certain energy range. Numerical valves of production yield in MBq/µA and particle energies in MeV were obtained from eqn. (1). We give the thick target yield from Figures 4-6.
