The Chemical Composition Of Cernis 52 (BD+31 Degrees 640)
We present an abundance analysis of the star Cernis 52 in whose spectrum we recently reported the naphthalene cation in absorption at 6707.4 angstrom. This star is on a line of sight to the Perseus molecular complex. The ...
Are C-60 Molecules Detectable In Circumstellar Shells Of R Coronae Borealis Stars?
The hydrogen-poor, helium-rich, and carbon-rich character of the gas around R Coronae Borealis (RCB) stars has been suggested to be a site for formation of C-60 molecules. This suggestion is not supported by observations ...
Oxygen Isotopic Ratios In Cool R Coronae Borealis Stars
We investigate the relationship between R Coronae Borealis (RCB) stars and hydrogen-deficient carbon (HdC) stars by measuring precise (16)O/(18)O ratios for five cool RCB stars. The (16)O/(18)O ratios are derived by spectrum ...
