Abstract

We present a map of the Galactic center in the J=l-0 line of SiO covering the region mapped with the ASCA satellite in the 6.4 keV Fe line. We find a correlation between the spatial distribution of the Fe 6.4 keV line and the SiO emission. The SiO abundance increases by more than a factor of 20 in the regions with strong Fe 6.4 keV line. This indicates that the Fe 6.4 keV line mainly arises from molecular clouds with large gas phase abundance of refractory elements. We discuss the implications of the correlation on the origin of the hard X-rays, and the heating and the chemistry of the molecular clouds in the GC.
