AbstractUranium wavelengths in the spectra of Ap stars are studied to see if they give any indication of a recent r-process event. It is concluded that there is no credible evidence for an admixture of uranium-253 in these stars, which would imply such an event. The evidence, though negative, is badly confused by blending of lines, and a final judgement must wait for an observational clarification of the situation.
