The isoscalar and isovector parts of the quadrupole transition matrix elements for the direct Ogs+→2i+ excitation of low-lying 2+ states in 106Pd are derived from the inelastic scattering of deuterons and of polarized protons. The isovector component for the 2+ level at 3.070 MeV exceeds significantly the isoscalar one. This level is therefore identified as a mixed-symmetry state in the language of the neutron and proton interacting boson model (IBA-2).
