Excited states of Sb118 were populated via the Cd116(Li7,5n)Sb118 fusion-evaporation reaction at a beam energy of 50 MeV. The previously known level scheme has been considerably extended, and about 36 new transitions were added into the level scheme of Sb118. One new rotational band has been identified, and assigned the πg9/2-1 -νg7/2 configuration. The configuration-fixed constrained triaxial relativistic mean-field approaches and the particle-rotor model calculations are employed for analysis of the level structure of Sb118.
