  • Urea, NH2C(O)NH2, is a molecule of great importance in organic chemistry and biology. Two searches for urea in the interstellar medium were reported in the past, but neither were conclusive. We want to take advantage of the increased sensitivity and angular resolution provided by ALMA to search for urea toward the hot cores embedded in the high-mass star forming region Sgr B2(N). We use the new spectral line survey ReMoCA performed toward Sgr B2(N) with ALMA in its observing cycle 4. The… CONTINUE READING
