The double Penning trap JYFLTRAP at the University of Jyvaskyla has been successfully used to achieve high-precision mass measurements of nuclei involved in the rapid proton-capture (rp) process. A precise mass measurement of 31Cl is essential to estimate the waiting point condition of 30S in the rp-process occurring in type I x-ray bursts (XRBs). The mass-excess of 31Cl measured at JYFLTRAP, -7034.7(3.4) keV, is 15 more precise than the value given in the Atomic Mass Evaluation 2012. The proton separation energy Sp determined from the new mass-excess value confirmed that 30S is a waiting point, with a lowertemperature limit of 0.44 GK. The mass of 52Co effects both 51Fe(p,γ)52Co and 52Co(p,γ)53Ni reactions. The mass-excess value measured, - 34 331.6(6.6) keV is 30 times more precise than the value given in AME2012. The Q values for the 51Fe(p,γ)52Co and 52Co(p,γ)53Ni reactions are now known with a high precision, 1418(11) keV and 2588(26) keV respectively. The results show that 52Co is more proton bound and 53Ni less proton bound than what was expected from the extrapolated value.
