We report the detection of CO emission in the recently discovered multiphase isolated gas cloud in the nearby galaxy cluster Abell 1367. The cloud is located about 800 kpc in projection from the center of the cluster and at a projected distance of >80 kpc from any galaxy. It is the first and the only known isolated “intra-cluster” cloud detected in X-ray, Hα, and CO emission. We found a total of about 2.2 × 108 M of H2 with the IRAM 30-m telescope in two regions, one associated with the peak of…

Ram pressure stripping in high-density environments
Galaxies living in rich environments are suffering different perturbations able to drastically affect their evolution. Among these, ram pressure stripping, i.e. the pressure exerted by the hot and
