The cross sections for (d, n) reactions on nat C- 197 Au have been measured at a bombarding energy of 55 MeV and a laboratory scattering angle of θ lab = 9.5 . The angular distributions for the nat C(d, n) reaction have also been obtained at θ lab = 0 -40 . The neutron energy spectra are dominated by deuteron breakup contributions and their peak positions can be reasonably reproduced by considering the Coulomb force effects. The data are compared with the TENDL-2015 nuclear data and Particle and Heavy Ion Transport code System (PHITS) calculations. Both calculations fail to reproduce the measured energy spectra and angular distributions.
