The highly sensitive GASP array at the INFN Legnaro Laboratory was used to study the γ-ray de-excitation of neutron-rich nuclei produced in the deep-inelastic processes which occur when 230MeV 36S ions interact with a target of 176Yb. Yrast decay schemes were identified in over forty target-like fragments and in over twenty projectile-like fragments. Extensions have been made to the yrast decay sequences of 176Hf, 166Er, 172Yb, and 152Sm in the target-like species. New transitions have also been observed in a number of projectile-like species including 34P and 41Cl. The level structures of 34P and 41Cl are compared with the results of shell-model calculations.
