Abstract. The formation of large size clusters, namely two doubly magic 16O, and their relative motion, as possible excitation mode, are suggested to be a probable solution of the longstanding problem of missing quadrupole collectivity in shell-model calculations aiming to describe electromagnetic B(E2) transition strengths and quadrupole moments of the low-lying states in 32S.
