Context. A recent study reported a strong apparent depression of Fe i, relative to Fe ii, in the AGB stars of NGC 6752. This depression is much greater than that expected from the neglect of non-local thermodynamic equilibrium effects, in particular the dominant effect of overionisation. The iron abundances derived from Fe i were then used to scale all other neutral species in the study. Aims. Here we attempt to reproduce the apparent Fe discrepancy, and investigate differences in reported...[Show more]
