Abstract (from CDS):
Starting from a complete sample of type 1 active galactic nuclei (AGN) observed by INTEGRAL in the 20-40 keV band, we have selected a set of eight AGN which can be classified as radio-loud objects according to their 1.4 GHz power density, radio-to-hard X-ray flux density ratio and radio morphology. The sample contains six broad-line radio Galaxies and two candidate ones. Most of the objects in our sample display a double-lobe morphology, both on small and large scales. For all the objects, we present broad-band (1-110 keV) spectral analysis using INTEGRAL observations together with archival XMM-Newton, Chandra, Swift/XRT and Swift/BAT data. We constrain the primary continuum (photon index and cut-off energy), intrinsic absorption and reprocessing features (iron line and reflection) in most of the objects. The sources analysed here show remarkable similarities to radio-quiet type 1 AGN with respect to most of the parameters analysed; we only find marginal evidence for weaker reprocessing features in our objects compared to their radio-quiet counterparts. Similarly, we do not find any correlation between the spectral parameters studied and the source core dominance or radio to 20-100 keV flux density ratios, suggesting that what makes our objects radio loud has no effect on their high-energy characteristics.
