Iron Depletion in ionized Nebulae of the Large Magellanic Cloud

By G. Delgado-Inglada, M. Rodríguez, J. García-Rojas, M. Peña and M. T. Ruiz


We present here preliminary results of an analysis of the iron abundance in the ionized gas of three planetary nebulae and one H II region of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). These results are compared with the ones we obtain for a sample of Galactic and extragalactic nebulae. We find that the amounts of iron depletion into dust grains in LMC nebulae are similar to those found in Galactic nebulae. Objects with lower metallicities show lower depletions, but a larger sample of objects is needed to explore the reasons behind this trend.Comment: to appear in Rev. Mex. Astron and Astrofis. Conf.
