Radiative capture processes in steady and explosive hydrogen burning sometimes involve unstable nuclei. The Coulomb dissociation method has been used to determine the cross-sections of such reactions indirectly with intermediate-energy RI beams. Recent studies on reactions in the pp chain, hot pp chain and CNO cycle are discussed.
