The Chemistry of Cold, Dark Interstellar Clouds

  • W. M. Irvine (a1)

Abstract

In recent years the nearby cold, dark clouds have been shown to possess a rich chemistry, with interesting differences with respect to warmer massive-star-forming regions and also among the cold clouds themselves. 39 molecular species are now known in these regions. Recent molecular detections and upper limits in dark clouds are discussed, with particular emphasis on the tri-carbon species C3O, C3H, and C3H2.
