Observation and analysis of interstellar acetone in GAL 31.41+0.31, GAL 034.3+00.2, and GAL 10.47+00.03.


Abstract (from CDS):

We present observations of interstellar acetone (CH3COCH3) detected in broadband line surveys in the 1.3 mm band from the Caltech Submillimeter Observatory (CSO). The observations were conducted toward three massive star-forming regions: GAL 31.41+0.31, GAL 034.3+00.2, and GAL 10.47+00.03. Numerous acetone lines were detected in these three sources. The results were analyzed using the assumption of local thermodynamic equilibrium. These results rigorously confirm the previous reports of acetone detections in GAL 31.41+0.31 and GAL 10.47+00.03, and add a new acetone detection in GAL 034.3+00.2. Source-averaged column densities for acetone were determined to be 1.1(6)×1016 cm–2 for GAL 31.41+0.31, 6.4(3)×1016 cm–2 for GAL 10.47+00.03, and 1.3(3)×1015 cm–2 for GAL 034.3+00.2. The rotational temperatures of acetone in these three sources range from 49 to 132 K, which suggests a complicated formation mechanism for interstellar acetone.
