Production and studies of neutron-rich nuclei produced in fission are reviewed. Some recent experiments performed with the ISOL technique at the IGISOL and the ISOLDE facilities are reviewed. The manipulation of neutron-rich nuclei is discussed with a special focus on radioactive ion cooling and trapping techniques under construction worldwide. Perspectives of obtaining intense post accelarated beams of fission products are discussed.
