The chemistry of carbon dust formation

  • Isabelle Cherchneff (a1) and Piero Cau (a1)
Abstract

We shall review the various types of chemistry involved in the formation of carbonaceous material present in carbon-rich AGB stars, mainly amorphous carbon, silicon carbide and other metal carbides discovered in pre-solar Stardust extracted from meteorites. The chemistry is discussed in the context of laboratory experiments and their application to circumstellar AGB winds. Emphasis is put on polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), titanium carbide clusters and silicon carbide grains. Attempt to explain the condensation sequences derived from the study of pre-solar grains of meteoretical origin is made on the basis of physio-chemical models which describe the periodically shocked gas close to the photosphere of AGB stars.
