Improving our understanding of the nuclear properties of high-Eddington ratio (λEdd) active galactic nuclei (AGN) is necessary since at this regime the radiation pressure is expected to affect the structure and efficiency of the accretion disc-corona system. This may cause departures from the typical nuclear properties of low-λEdd AGN, which have been largely studied so far. We present here the X-ray spectral analysis of 14 radio-quiet, λEdd & 1 AGN at 0.4 ≤ z ≤ 0.75, observed with XMM-Newton…
