Gisbert Winnewisser’s astronomical career was practically coextensive with the whole development of molecular radio astronomy. Here I would like to pick out a few of his many contributions, which I, personally, find particularly interesting and put them in the context of newer results.

Physical properties of Class I methanol masers
Abstract As first realised in the late 1980s, methanol masers come in two varieties, termed Class I and Class II. While Class II masers had observationally been extensively studied in the past, untilExpand

Where is the heavy molecule heimat in Sgr B2
We review some of the early history of molecular radio detections and show how the Sgr B2 region came to be recognized as an important molecular source. We show the usefulness of millimeter arrayExpand
BIPOLAR MOLECULAR OUTFLOWS FROM YOUNG STARS AND PROTOSTARS
A violent outflow of high-velocity gas is one of the first manifestations of the formation of a new star. Such outflows emerge bipolarly from the young object and involve amounts of energy similar toExpand
THE GALACTIC CENTER ENVIRONMENT
▪ Abstract The central half kiloparsec region of our Galaxy harbors a variety of phenomena unique to the central environment. This review discusses the observed structure and activity of theExpand
Cyanoacetylene in dense interstellar clouds.
Statistical equilibrium calculations were performed and matched to the observations of several sources. These calculations indicate the following: homogeneous cloud models are inadequate for at leastExpand
Molecular gas in the Galactic center region - I. Data from a large scale (J = 1 0) survey
A large scale survey of the Galactic center region in the () transition is presented. This survey was obtained with the 1.2 m Southern Millimeter-Wave Telescope (SMWT) at the Cerro TololoExpand
A search for NaH in dense molecular clouds : evidence against formation on grains.
The J = 1--0 rotational transition of NaH, at 289.864 GHz, was searched for but not detected toward five dense molecular clouds. The most stringent upper limit on the NaH fractional abundance isExpand
Interstellar H3O+ and its relation to the O2 and H2O abundances
We present an interstellar medium study of the three reasonably accessible low-lying submillimeter lines of the H 3 O + molecular ion at 396, 364, and 307 GHz. Emission at the frequencies of theExpand
Star Formation in Molecular Clouds: Observation and Theory
Star-formation (SF) processes occurring on the scale of giant molecular clouds (10 to the 6th solar masses and 10 to the 20th cm) or smaller are discussed, reviewing the results of recent theoreticalExpand
Radio Detection of Interstellar CH
As recently as 1968 the only molecules known to exist in interstellar space were CH, CH+ and CN, identified by means of their absorption spectra superimposed on the optical spectra of bright stars,Expand
EVIDENCE FOR THE MOLECULAR ORIGIN OF SOME HITHERTO UNIDENTIFIED INTERSTELLAR LINES
In recent years a considerable number of lines of interstellar origin have been discovered by the Mount Wilson observers.1 Several of these have been identified with known atomic lines arising fromExpand
