Description
We present new 26Al stellar yields from rotating Wolf-Rayet stellar models which, at solar metallicity, well reproduce the observed properties of the Wolf-Rayet populations. These new yields are enhanced with respect to non-rotating models, even with respect to non-rotating models computed with enhanced mass loss rates. We briefly discuss some implications of the use of these new yields for estimating the global contribution of Wolf-Rayet stars to the quantity of 26Al now present in the Milky Way.
