We have carried out nuclear quadrupolar resonance (NQR) measurements on SmRu4 P12 and YbAl3 C3, both of which have attracted much interest in terms of multipolar ordering. Although no structural anomalies have been detected by diffraction experiments so far, the NQR resonance frequencies νQ's of both compounds show marked anomalies just below each phase transition temperature, which probably probes the order parameters. The results provide important information to shed light on the ordered structures in the low temperature phases of these compounds.
