A survey of acetic acid toward hot molecular cores.


Abstract (from CDS):

We have surveyed 12 Galactic hot molecular cores for interstellar acetic acid (CH3COOH). This is the most extensive search for acetic acid to date. We have detected a new source of acetic acid toward the high-mass hot molecular core source G34.3+0.2. Using a temperature range between 70 and 185 K, we find a CH3COOH column density range of (0.77-1.64)x1015 cm–2 toward G34.3+0.2. This gives a relative CH3COOH/HCOOCH3abundance ratio of ∼3.3x10–2, which is comparable to the abundance ratio of (3-6)x10–2 found toward Sgr B2(N-LMH) and W51e2 by Remijan and colleagues. All currently known acetic acid sources are within 7 kpc of the Galactic center. Furthermore, our survey suggests that hot molecular cores that have a mass range between 200 and 2000 Mand do not show a distinct differentiation between O and N chemistry may be the best places to search for acetic acid and the structurally similar biologically important molecule glycine.
