Abstract (from CDS):
We present detailed chemical analyses for a sample of 12 stars selected from the CH star catalogue of Bartkevicius. The sample includes two confirmed binaries, four objects that are known to show radial velocity variations and the rest with no information on the binary status. A primary objective is to examine if all these objects exhibit chemical abundances characteristics of CH stars, based on detailed chemical composition study using high-resolution spectra. We have used high-resolution (R ∼ 42 000) spectra from the ELODIE archive. These spectra cover 3900 to 6800 Å in the wavelength range. We have estimated the stellar atmospheric parameters, the effective temperature Teff, the surface gravity log g, and metallicity [Fe/H] from local thermodynamic equilibrium analysis using model atmospheres. Estimated temperatures of these objects cover a wide range from 4200 to 6640 K, the surface gravity from 0.6 to 4.3 and metallicity from -0.13 to -1.5. We report updates on elemental abundances for several heavy elements, Sr, Y, Zr, Ba, La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Sm, Eu and Dy. For the object HD 89668, we present the first abundance analyses results. Enhancement of heavy elements relative to Fe, a characteristic property of CH stars is evident from our analyses in the case of four objects, HD 92545, HD 104979, HD 107574 and HD 204613. A parametric-model-based study is performed to understand the relative contributions from the s- and r-process to the abundances of the heavy elements.
