The mm-wave spectrum of the C-star envelope IRC+10216 has been continuously surveyed between 129.0 and 172.5 GHz with the IRAM 30-m telescope. 380 lines are detected, of which 317 have been identied. The iden- tied lines arise from 30 dierent molecules and radicals which, in their vast majority, are not observed in hot and dense interstellar clouds such as Orion A or W3(OH). Actually, half of the molecular species identied in the mm-wave spectrum of IRC+10216 were rst observed in the course of… Expand
