The Al27(p,d)26Al reaction has been studied at Ep=35 MeV with high resolution to populate known 5- and 6- stretched states of d5/2-holef7/2- particle structure, and to obtain the weak spectroscopic factors. These are compared to results also obtained for the Mg26(p,d)25Mg and Mg26(3He,)25Mg reactions to known (7/2- states. An analysis of these results in the Nilsson scheme exposes the structure of the 6- stretched states and offers an understanding of the fragmentation of M6 stretched transition strength in Mg26, as seen by electron scattering. This work is part of a consistent study of many nuclear reactions to stretched states in mass 26, to serve as a test case for these important single-particle modes.
