The neutron-rich carbon isotopes 19,17C and the boron isotope 14B have been investigated, respectively, by the proton inelastic and charge-exchange reactions on a liquid hydrogen target at around 70 MeV/nucleon. The invariant mass method in inverse kinematics was employed to map the energy spectrum above the neutron decay threshold of the residual nuclei. New states on carbon isotopes are reported. An experimental capability of extracting β-decay strengths via forward angle (p, n) cross sections on unstable nuclei is shown.
