Negative-parity excitations in the 2.5 MeV region in 112Cd have been investigated with the (n, n′γ) reaction. Several of these states exhibit enhanced B(E2) values for decay to the 3-1 octupole state, indicative of quadrupole-octupole coupled (2+ ⊗ 3-) structures. The B(E 1) values observed are typically in the range of 1-5 × 10-4 W.u., irrespective of the final state.
