We study the effects of the magnetic fields on the formation of massive, self-gravitationally bound cores (MBCs) in high-speed cloud-cloud collisions (CCCs). Extending our previous work (Sakre et al. 2021), we perform magnetohydrodynamic simulations following the high-speed (20 - 40 km s − 1 ) collisions between two magnetized (4 µ G initially), turbulent clouds of different sizes in the range of 7 - 20 pc. We show that a magnetic field effect hinders the core growth, particularly after a short…
