H I -deficiency in Hickson compact groups of galaxies *
Received 12 December 1996 / Accepted 7 April 1997
We present HI observations of 54 Hickson Compact Groups (HCG) of which 41 have been detected in the 21-cm line of neutral hydrogen. For 13 objects upper limits have been obtained. The integrated values of the observed HCGs scatter over a large range of values showing strong HI-deficiencies for a great number of objects.
