Spectra of coincident charged particles from the reactions induced by a 18 beam incident on the and 7Li targets were measured. A strong contribution to the -d spectrum may be interpreted as the quasi-free scattering off the deuteron in the nucleus. This would then be the first observation of the quasi-free scattering of fragile radioactive nuclei on clusters in target nuclei.
