Abstract

The profile of the absorption feature at 2200 Å has been calculated for model grains of graphite, graphite core-dirty ice mantle and silicate. They are compared with the observed profile obtained by Bless and Savage from a number of early type stars. We have also shown that it is unlikely that the radiation damage of silicates in Interstellar Space can also contribute to the absorption feature at 2200 Å. Lastly, we have discussed briefly how one can meet the objections that have been raised on the silicate model.
