Abstract (from CDS):

We have observed high-dispersion echelle spectra of red giant members in the five open clusters (OCs) NGC 1342, NGC 1662, NGC 1912, NGC 2354 and NGC 2447 and determined their radial velocities and chemical compositions. These are the first chemical abundance measurements for all but NGC 2447. We combined our clusters from this and previous papers with a sample drawn from the literature for which we remeasured the chemical abundances to establish a common abundance scale. With this homogeneous sample of OCs, we study the relative elemental abundances of stars in OCs in comparison with field stars as a function of age and metallicity. We find a range of mild enrichment of heavy (Ba-Eu) elements in young OC giants over field stars of the same metallicity. Our analysis supports that the youngest stellar generations in cluster might be underrepresented by the solar neighbourhood field stars.
