In this study, we have investigated the asymmetry term effect for the (n, d) reaction cross sections at 14-15 neutron incident energy. It has been discussed the odd-even effect and the pairing effect considering binding energy systematic of the nuclear shell model for the new experimental data and new cross section formulae developed by Tel et al. for (n, d) reactions. We have determined different parameter groups by the classification of nuclei into even-even, even-odd and odd-even for (n, d) reactions cross sections. The obtained empirical and semi-empirical formulae by fitting two parameters for (n, d) reactions were given. By using the new cross sections formulae for (n, d) reactions the obtained results have been discussed and compared with the available experimental data.
