Nuclear moment studies on nuclei situated far from the β-stability line, performed by taking advantage of the projectile fragmentation reaction, are reviewed. A method to produce spin polarization/alignment in the projectile fragments was developed and utilized for the β-NMR/NQR measurements. Several new findings in nuclear structure physics were obtained from the nuclear moment experiments done with these techniques.
