Survey Observations in the 45 GHz and 90 GHz Bands toward High-Mass Star-Forming Regions
We carried out survey observations of carbon-chain molecules and N2H+ in the 45 GHz and 90 GHz bands toward high-mass starless cores (HMSCs) and high-mass protostellar objects (HMPOs) with the Nobeyama 45-m radio telescope in the last two observational seasons. Our main purpose is to investigate the chemical evolution in the high-mass star-forming regions. We compare the I(N2H+)/I(HC3N) ratios using the 90 GHz band lines among HMSCs and HMPOs, and found that the ratios decrease from HMSCs to HMPOs, in contrast to the low-mass star-forming regions and giant molecular clouds. The column density of HC3N derived from 45 GHz line is well correlated with the integrated intensity of CCS, but that derived from 82 GHz line is not correlated. The high-excitation energy HC3N is enhanced in HMSCs where SiO has been detected. From these results, we propose that HC3N is re-generated in the shock regions driven by molecular outflows.
