The (14C, 16O) reaction on even Ru and Pd isotopes has been investigated at 60 MeV bombarding energy. Relative spectroscopic strengths for transitions to the ground states are found to decrease suddenly at N=60. Evidence is presented which suggests that a significant contribution to the reaction mechanism for transfers to the ground states could be due to the sequential transfer of the protons. Large two-proton hole components are found in the first excited 0+ states of the light Mo isotopes.
