We report on studies of the beta-decays of 31 Ar, 20,21 Mg, and 16 N performed at the ISOLDE decay station (IDS) at CERN. These studies illustrate how betadecays measured with the IDS can be used to extract information of astrophysical interest, or to study the structure and decay mechanism of exotic nuclei. We discuss the specific implementation of the IDS designed for this type of studies including detector setups and data acquisition.
