Chemistry in High-Mass Star-Forming Regions

speaker: Kotomi Taniguchi


The chemical composition is a useful diagnostic tool to investigate the physical conditions and the star formation processes.In this talk, I will talk about our recent studies about the chemical diversity around massive young stellar objects (MYSOs) and about the NGC 2264 cluster.Carbon-chain species, which were considered to be deficient around MYSOs, can be abundant around some MYSOs, using single-dish radio telescopes.I will show our latest ALMA data toward the NGC2264-D cluster-forming clump in Cycle 7.In addition, I will briefly mention my future research plan.
