The 1 mm spectrum of VY Canis Majoris: Chemistry in an O-rich envelope
Conference contribution, 2008
We present preliminary results of an unbiased spectral survey at 1 mm of the oxygen-rich supergiant, VY CMa. A number of exotic molecules have been detected, including NaC1 and PO, and a relatively rich organic chemistry is observed. Results of the survey will be compared with carbon-rich stars.
