Early Science from GOTHAM: Project Overview, Methods, and the Detection of Interstellar Propargyl Cyanide (HCCCH2CN) in TMC-1
We present an overview of the GOTHAM (GBT Observations of TMC-1: Hunting Aromatic Molecules) Large Program on the Green Bank Telescope. This and a related program were launched to explore the depthExpand
ALMA Observations of the Spatial Distribution of three C$_2$H$_4$O$_2$ Isomers towards Sgr B2(N).
The C$_2$H$_4$O$_2$ isomers have been previously investigated primarily via disparate sets of observations involving single dish and array measurements. The only attempt at using a uniform set ofExpand
ALMA Detection of Vibrationally Excited (v t = 1, 2) Acetic Acid toward NGC 6334I
Vibrationally excited states of detected interstellar molecules have been shown to account for a large portion of unidentified spectral lines in observed interstellar spectra toward chemically richExpand
Interstellar detection of the highly polar five-membered ring cyanocyclopentadiene
Much like six-membered rings, five-membered rings are ubiquitous in organic chemistry, frequently serving as the building blocks for larger molecules, including many of biochemical importance. From aExpand
Searches for Interstellar HCCSH and H$_2$CCS
A long standing problem in astrochemistry is the inability of many current models to account for missing sulfur content. Many relatively simple species that may be good candidates to sequester sulfurExpand
Detection of two interstellar polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons via spectral matched filtering
Potential in situ gas-phase PAH formation pathways from smaller organic precursor molecules are discussed and two nitrile-group–functionalized PAHs, 1- and 2-cyanonaphthalene, are detected in the interstellar medium. Expand
Detection of Interstellar HC4NC and an Investigation of Isocyanopolyyne Chemistry under TMC-1 Conditions
We report an astronomical detection of HC$_4$NC for the first time in the interstellar medium with the Green Bank Telescope toward the TMC-1 molecular cloud with a minimum significance of $10.5Expand
Interstellar Detection of 2-cyanocyclopentadiene, C5H5CN, a Second Five-membered Ring toward TMC-1
Using radio observations with the Green Bank Telescope, evidence has now been found for a second five-membered ring in the dense cloud Taurus Molecular Cloud-1 (TMC-1). Based on additionalExpand
An investigation of spectral line stacking techniques and application to the detection of HC11N
As the inventory of interstellar molecules continues to grow, the gulf between small species, whose individual rotational lines can be observed with radio telescopes, and large ones, such asExpand
