The low-lying octupole strength distribution in 112Cd has been measured by means of inelastic proton scattering. A splitting of the strength has been observed and interpreted as due to the interaction between the quadrupole and octupole degrees of freedom. The splitting can be reproduced by the IBA-1 model if the coupling of f- and d-bosons is considered.
