%C 9 divides neither C(s-1,s/2) (= A001700(s/2)) nor C(s,s/2) (= A000984(s/2)) if and only if s = a(n).

%F a(n) = 2 * A051382(n).

%e 2, which in base 3 is also '2', satisfies the condition, thus it is included;

%e 4, which in base 3 is '11', is included;

%e 6, which in base 3 is '20', is included;

%e 8, which in base 3 is '22', is included;

%e 12, which in base 3 is '110', is included;

%e 14, which in base 3 is '112', is included;

%e however, e.g., 13, 40, and 130, whose ternary representations are '111', '1111' and '11211' respectively, are not included, because they all contain more than one pair of 1's.
