In this work we present an experiment dedicated to searching for quarupole- collective isovector valence-shell excitation — the states with so-called mixed proton-neutron symmetry (MSSs), in the nucleus 212Po. The states of interest were populated and studied by an α-transfer reaction. The experiment provides indication for existence of one-phonon MSS in the nucleus 212Po which is the first experimentally identified MSS in the region around double magic nucleus 208Pb.
