Abstract

This paper has been devoted to a basic molecular studies of polyatomics. A critical analysis of the 70 available references in literature has been made to select 37 polyatomic molecules, molecular ions, and radicals containing six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve, and thirteen atoms of astrophysical significance. The results have been arranged in a text-cum-tabular form. The compilation contains various information for each molecule, such as the spectral region, transition levels, astrophysical objects where the respective molecules have been detected (say, comet, meteorite, Sun, planet, star, interstellar matter, interstellar cloud, molecular cloud, interstellar space, Galaxy, etc.). Two-hundred fourteen new polyatomic molecules (containing 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 atoms) of astrophysical significance have also been listed.
