New experimental data for the C-12+C-12 reaction have been measured in the center-of-mass energy range E-c.m.=40-59 MeV. Excitation functions for a number of single and mutual C-12 inelastic channels have been measured which include the 0(g.s.)(+), 2(1)(+), 0(2)(+), 3(1)(-), and 4(1)(+) C-12 states. All of the reactions display largely unstructured excitation functions over this energy range. The absence of further resonances in this energy region for the C-12(C-12,C-12[3(1)(-)])C-12[3(1)(-)] reaction confirms theoretical predictions of the termination of the band of resonances found at lower center-of-mass energies in this channel.
