The Evolution of Fluorine in Galactic Systems

Renda, A; Fenner, Y; Gibson, Bradley K; Karakas, Amanda; Lattanzio, John; Campbell, S; Chieffi, A; Cunha, K; Smith, V.V


The main astrophysical factories of fluorine (19F) are thought to be Type II supernovae, Wolf-Rayet stars, and the asymptotic giant branch (AGB) of intermediate mass stars. We present a model for the chemical evolution of fluorine in the Milky Way using a semi-analytic multi-zone chemical evolution model. For the first time, we demonstrate quantitatively the impact of fluorine nucleosynthesis in Wolf-Rayet and AGB stars. The inclusion of these latter two fluorine production sites provides a...[Show more]
