In this paper, we present the results of an observational search for gas phase urea [(NH2)2CO] observed toward the Sgr B2(N-LMH) region. We show data covering urea transitions from ∼100 GHz to 250 GHz from five different observational facilities: the Berkeley–Illinois–Maryland-Association (BIMA) Array, the Combined Array for Research in Millimeter-wave Astronomy (CARMA), the NRAO 12 m telescope, the IRAM 30 m telescope, and the Swedish-ESO Submillimeter Telescope (SEST). The results show that… 

Rotational spectrum of methoxyamine up to 480 GHz: a laboratory study and astronomical search.

Methoxyamine is a potential interstellar amine that has been predicted by gas-grain chemical models for the formation of complex molecules and direct experimental frequencies of its ground-vibrational state in the millimeter- and submillimeter-wave regions are provided to achieve its detection in the interstellar medium.

Re-exploring Molecular Complexity with ALMA (ReMoCA): interstellar detection of urea

Context. Urea, NH2C(O)NH2, is a molecule of great importance in organic chemistry and biology. Two searches for urea in the interstellar medium have been reported in the past, but neither were

About the detection of urea in the interstellar medium: the energetic aspect

Context. The results of an observational search for gas phase urea, (NH 2 ) 2 CO toward the Sgr B2-LMH region, have been reported recently. In spite of strong presumptions, whether it is urea or

Complex organics in space from Solar System to distant galaxies

Recent observational and experimental evidence for the presence of complex organics in space is reviewed. Remote astronomical observations have detected $$\sim $$∼200 gas-phased molecules through

Quantum Chemical Study of the Formation of Urea in Interstellar Medium

Background: Many observational studies have found the presence of organic molecules in interstellar medium (ISM) via spectroscopy. NH2CONH2 (urea) was first detected in ISM in 2014. Containing two
