Abstract

Arcsecond-resolution spectral observations toward the protobinary system IRAS 16293-2422 at 344 and 354 GHz were conducted using the Submillimeter Array. Several complex organic molecules, such as CH3OH and HCOOCH 3, were detected and mapped. Together with the rich organic inventory revealed, it clearly indicates the existence of two, rather than one, compact hot molecular cores (≲400 AU in radius) associated with each of the protobinary components identified by their dust continuum emission in the inner star-forming core.
