An extensive search for the complex molecule trans-ethyl methyl ether towards several hot core regions has been performed. Using the IRAM 30 m telescope and the SEST 15 m we looked at several frequencies where trans-ethyl methyl ether has strong transitions, as well as lines which are particularly sensitive to the physical conditions in which the molecule can be found. We included G34.26, NGC 6334(I), Orion KL, and W51e2 which have previously been proven to have a rich chemistry of complex… 

THE SEARCH FOR A COMPLEX MOLECULE IN A SELECTED HOT CORE REGION: A RIGOROUS ATTEMPT TO CONFIRM TRANS-ETHYL METHYL ETHER TOWARD W51 e1/e2

An extensive search has been conducted to confirm transitions of trans-ethyl methyl ether (tEME, C2H5OCH3), toward the high-mass star forming region W51 e1/e2 using the 12 m Telescope of the Arizona

Searching for trans ethyl methyl ether in Orion KL.

We report on the tentative detection of trans ethyl methyl ether (tEME), t-CH3CH2OCH3, through the identification of a large number of rotational lines from each one of the spin states of the

Constraining the Molecular Complexity in the Interstellar Medium—The Formation of Ethyl Methyl Ether (CH3OCH2CH3) in Star-forming Regions

We report the first confirmed synthesis of ethyl methyl ether (EME, CH3CH2OCH3) within astrophysical model ices containing water (H2O) and methane (CH4) exposed to ionizing radiation at ultra-low

CCSD(T) study of the far-infrared spectrum of ethyl methyl ether.

Band positions and intensities for the far-infrared bands of ethyl methyl ether are variationally determined from a three-dimensional (3D) potential energy surface calculated with CCSD(T)/cc-pVTZ theory and a new assignment of previous experimental bands is proposed.

Search for complex organic molecules in space

It was 1969 when the first organic molecule in space, H2CO, was discovered. Since then many organic molecules were discovered by using the NRAO 11 m (upgraded later to 12 m), Nobeyama 45 m, IRAM 30
