In the reaction dynamics of intermediate-energy radioactive beams we can probe highly asymmetric nuclear matter in compressed as well as dilute phases. In this report some predictions are presented, based on analytical results as well as on reaction simulations. We suggest a series of experiments with RIB aimed to shed light on isospin properties of nuclear interactions in the medium.
