Excited states in 136Ba, populated in deep inelastic collisions by the interaction of 450 MeV 82Se ions with a 139La target, have been studied by means of in-beam -ray spectroscopy. A new isomer with has been identified at an excitation energy E x = 3.357 MeV. The half-life was determined as ns. The extracted B(E2) value is much smaller than those in 132Te and 134Xe. This hindrance is investigated by a shell model calculation.
