We report the detection of interstellar methoxymethanol (CH3OCH2OH) in Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) Bands. 6 and. 7 toward the MM1 core in the high-mass star-forming region NGC 6334I at similar to 0 ''. 1-1 ''. spatial resolution. A column density of 4(2). x 10(18) cm(-2) at T-ex = 200 K is derived toward MM1, similar to 34. times less abundant than methanol (CH3OH), and significantly higher than predicted by astrochemical models. Probable formation and destruction… Expand
