Range reflects span for rotational states in the Voff = 0 km s-1 and the Voff = 10 km s-1 components of Sgr B2(N). Propanal is not detected, therefore the upper limit is used after correction for a similar beam filling factor.


Range reflects span for the rotational and first torsionally (νt = 1) excited states of acetaldehyde in the Voff = −1 km s-1 component of Sgr B2(N).


Chemical model of hot cores for a slow, medium, and fast model, respectively.
