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 $10.5 \sigma$. The total column density and excitation temperature of HC$_4$NC are determined to be $3.29^{+8.60}_{-1.20}\times 10^{11}$ cm$^{-2}$ and $6.7^{+0.3}_{-0.3}$ K, respectively, using the MCMC analysis. In addition to HC$_4$NC, HCCNC is distinctly detected whereas no clear detection of HC$_6$NC is… Expand
