Abstract: The evolution of the stellar mass–metallicity relation is still a matter of intense debate ( Savaglio et al. 2005; Liang, Hammer, & Flores 2006). We present here preliminary results using a sample of intermediate mass galaxies with redshift between 0.4 and 0.8. We take special care of the methodology used to measure metallicity in order to avoid any systematic errors coming from bad flux measurement or unreliable extinction determination. We confirm the results of Liang et al. (2006) that at z ∼ 0.6, galaxies have gas phases a half less enriched than in the local Universe.
