Abstract (from CDS):

We present ISO-SWS spectroscopy of the cool dusty envelopes surrounding two Planetary Nebulae with [WC] central stars, BD+30 3639 and He 2-113. The λ<15µm region is dominated by a rising continuum with prominent emission from C-rich dust (PAHs), while the long wavelength part shows narrow solid state features from crystalline silicates. This demonstrates that the chemical composition of both stars changed very recently (less than 1000 years ago). The most likely explanation is a thermal pulse at the very end of the AGB or shortly after the AGB. The H-rich nature of the C-rich dust suggests that the change to C-rich chemistry did not remove all H. The present-day H-poor [WC] nature of the central star may be due to extensive mass loss and mixing following the late thermal pulse.
