Abstract: The 16-48 micron spectra of five carbon-rich post-asymptotic giant branch (post-AGB) objects known to have an unidentified 21 micron feature in their IRAS low resolution spectrometer (LRS) spectra have been obtained using the Kuiper Airborne Observatory. A broad emission band extending from 24 to approximately 45 microns is present in the spectra of these objects. The strength of this band is variable from source to source and is not correlated with the strength of the 21 micron band. The possible identifications for the emitting material of both the 21 and 30 micron emission bands is discussed.
