Proton total reaction cross section measurements for 112Sn, 114Sn, 116Sn, 118Sn, 120Sn, 122Sn and 124Sn have been made using a standard attenuation technique first developed by Gooding and Eisberg, and later modified by Carlson. The measurements made at seven proton energies between 22 and 48 MeV at the University of Manitoba Cyclotron Laboratory. After accounting for increasing nuclear size, results show an increase in the reaction cross section with an increase of neutrons, except at energies 40 MeV and below, where the reaction cross section decreased for 122Sn and 124Sn.
