In this work we present the spectroscopic atmospheric parameters (Teff, logg , vmic and [Fe/H]) for all of our targets. By comparing the position on the HR diagram with stellar evolutionary tracks, we derived the mass, radius and evolutionary status for every star in our sample. In addition, rotational velocities are also measured. Description: We used high resolution and high S/N spectra to measure the equivalent widths of many FeI and FeII lines, which were used to derive the atmospheric parameters by imposing local thermodynamic and ionization equilibrium. The effective temperatures and metallicities were used, along with stellar evolutionary tracks to determine the physical properties and evolutionary status of each star. File Summary:
