Interstellar methanol is thought to be the precursor of larger, more complex organic molecules. It holds a central role in many astrochemical models (e.g., Garrod & Herbst 2006). Methanol has also been the focus of several laboratory studies (e.g., Watanabe et al. 2004, Fuchs et al. 2009), in an effort to gain insight into grain-surface chemistry, which potentially builds chemical complexity already in the cold, dark prestellar phase. The case of methanol is a prime example of experimental work having implications on astronomical scales. Drozdovskaya et al. (2014) unified physical and chemical models to simulate infalling material during the birth of a low-mass protostar. An axisymmetric 2D semi-analytic collapse model (Visser et al. 2009), wavelength-dependent radiative transfer calculations with RADMC3D (Dullemond & Dominik 2004) and a comprehensive gas-grain chemical network (Walsh et al. 2014) were used to study two modes of protoplanetary disk formation.
