Abstract (from CDS):

We present the discovery in TMC-1 of vinyl acetylene, CH2CHCCH, and the detection, for the first time in a cold dark cloud, of HCCN, HC4N, and CH3CH2CN. A tentative detection of CH3CH2CCH is also reported. The column density of vinyl acetylene is (1.2±0.2)x1013cm–2, which makes it one of the most abundant closed-shell hydrocarbons detected in TMC-1. Its abundance is only three times lower than that of propylene, CH3CHCH2. The column densities derived for HCCN and HC4N are (4.4±0.4)x1011cm–2 and (3.7±0.4)x1011cm–2, respectively. Hence, the HCCN/HC4N abundance ratio is 1.2± 0.3. For ethyl cyanide we derive a column density of (1.1±0.3)x1011cm–2. These results are compared with a state-of-the-art chemical model of TMC-1, which is able to account for the observed abundances of these molecules through gas-phase chemical routes.
