Abstract. XMM-Newton has been performing comprehensive studies
of X-ray luminous RS CVn binary systems in its calibration and guar-
anteed time programs. We present results from ongoing investigations in
the context of a systematic study of coronal emission from RS CVns. We
concentrate here on coronal abundances and investigate the abundance
pattern in RS CVn binaries as a function of activity and average tem-
perature. We nd a transition from an Inverse First Ionization Potential
(FIP) e ect towards an absence of a clear trend (no FIP) in intermedi-
ately active RS CVn systems. This scheme ts well into the long-term
evolution from an IFIP to a FIP e ect found in solar analogs. We further
study variations in the elemental abundances during a large are.
1. Introduction
RS CVn binary systems generally consist of a chromospherically active evolved
