One possibility is the difference in prestellar collapse.
Carbon is depleted as CO. On the other hand Carbon is depleted as C, In order to asses this possibility, various mol. including deuterated spieces should be observed.

Survey toward Many Sources
(2) Wide Frequency Coverage
(3) Large Instantaneous Bandwidth
(4) Reliable Observations
Observing Frequency
Full Aperture (50 m)
Medium Aperture (30 m)
Fundamental Species (H2D+, HD2+, NH, NH2 etc.)
Small Aperture (15 m)
Example of Observing Mode
5-6 sets are necessary to cover the whole band.
(2) 92-100 GHz
2-3 sets are necessary to cover the two bands.
Roles of Large Single Dish
Finding ‘New’ Sources rather than Ordinary Sources
Obtaining Large/Complete Statistical Data
Studying Large Scale Phenomena
Frequency Domain Survey → Chemical Diagnosis
Complimentary to ALMA
Why Chemistry?
Because it is crucial to understand evolution of matter in space.
