Cyanoformaldehyde (CNCHO) has been detected toward the star-forming region Sagittarius B2(N) with the 100 m Green Bank Telescope (GBT) by means of four P-branch rotational transitions in emission, the 7(0, 7)-6(1, 6) at 8.6 GHz, the 8(0, 8)-7(1, 7) at 19.4 GHz, the 9(0, 9)-8(1, 8) at 30.3 GHz, and the 10(0, 10)-9(1, 9) at 41.3 GHz, and one P-branch transition in absorption, the 5(1, 5)-6(0, 6) at 2.1 GHz. The five b-type transitions have favorable transition line strengths (S -->ij -->μ2 > 10… Expand

The sulphur saga in TMC-1: Discovery of HCSCN and HCSCCH.
TLDR
The detection, for the first time in space, of cyano thioformaldehyde and propynethial towards the starless core TMC-1 is reported and the formation of these molecules is discussed in terms of neutral-neutral reactions of S atoms with CH2CCH and CH2CN radicals as well as of CCH and CN radicals with H2CS.

Comprehensive rotational study and astronomical search for cyclopropanecarboxaldehyde.
TLDR
The analysis of the rotational spectrum of cyclopropanecarboxaldehyde allowed us to obtain accurate rotational parameters for the ground state of both cis and trans isomers, which were used to derive sufficiently reliable predictions up to 300 GHz. Expand
First detection of the pre-biotic molecule glycolonitrile (HOCH2CN) in the interstellar medium
Theories of a pre-RNA world suggest that glycolonitrile (HOCH$_2$CN) is a key species in the process of ribonucleotide assembly, which is considered as a molecular precursor of nucleic acids. In thisExpand
Submillimeter-wave spectroscopy and the radio-astronomical investigation of propynethial (HC≡CCHS)
Context. The majority of sulfur-containing molecules detected in the interstellar medium (ISM) are analogs of oxygen-containing compounds. Propynal was detected in the ISM in 1988, henceExpand
Millimeter wave spectra of carbonyl cyanide.
TLDR
The upper limits to its column density are derived in different sources based on the rotational spectrum of carbonyl cyanide, which should be accurate enough for astrophysical searches in the frequency range up to 500 GHz and for transition involving energy levels with J ≤ 100 and Ka ≤ 42. Expand
