Astrochemistry: February 2018

We predict how the C, N, and O abundances within the interstellar medium of galaxies evolve as functions of the galaxy star formation history (SFH).

This work presents theoretical studies which combine aspects of combustion and explosion theory with exoplanetary atmospheric science.

We report the first extragalactic detection of the complex organic molecules (COMs) dimethyl ether (CH3OCH3) and methyl formate (CH3OCHO) with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA).

Back in the 1930s, astronomers detected one of the first molecules in interstellar space - carbynes. The simplest carbyne, formed by carbon and hydrogen only, is nowadays considered one of the most basic ingredients for life.
