The properties of negative-parity states in the 2.5 MeV region in [Formula Presented] have been investigated with the [Formula Presented] reaction. For many of these levels, lifetimes have been measured, and [Formula Presented] and [Formula Presented] values for their decays have been determined. Several transitions exhibit enhanced [Formula Presented] values for decay to the [Formula Presented] octupole state, indicative of quadrupole-octupole coupled [Formula Presented] states. The [Formula Presented] values observed are typically in the range of 1–[Formula Presented] Weisskopf units (W.u.), irrespective of the final state.
