  • We present the host galaxy molecular gas properties of a sample of 213 nearby (0.01 10^44 erg/s) increases by ~10-100 between a molecular gas mass of 10^8.7 Msun and 10^10.2 Msun. Higher Eddington ratio AGN galaxies tend to have higher molecular gas masses and gas fractions. Higher column density AGN galaxies (Log NH>23.4) are associated with lower depletion timescales and may prefer hosts with more gas centrally concentrated in the bulge that may be more prone to quenching than galaxy wide… CONTINUE READING
