In the ROSAT all-sky survey 11 HgMn stars were detected as soft X-ray
emitters. Prior to ROSAT, X-ray observations with the Einstein Observatory had
suggested that stars in the spectral range B5-A7 are devoid of X-ray
emission. Since there is no X-ray emitting mechanism available for these stars
(also not for HgMn stars), the usual argument in the case of an X-ray
detected star of this spectral type is the existence of an unseen low-mass
companion which is responsible for the X-ray emission. The purpose of the
present work is to use all available data for our sample of X-ray detected
HgMn stars and conclude on the nature of possible companions.
