Abstract

We present the first results of a wide observational program intended to study the effects of hot-bottom burning and of the third dredge-up in the chemical evolution of the most luminous AGB stars in our Galaxy. The main goal is to provide new observational constraints to the models through the analysis of lithium and s-process element abundances in a carefully selected sample of galactic AGB stars. Our results indicate that, unlike observed in the Magellanic Clouds, the most massive AGB candidates in our Galaxy do not show any significant enrichment in s-process elements. In addition, only some of them are found to be Li-rich.
