Radiative Transfer Modeling of Some Relevant Interstellar Species
Study of the formation of a star is immensely important as this holds clues to the matter abundance after Big Bang and also the subsequent evolution of chemical abundance of the Universe. Various evolutionary stages of the star formation could be probed by observing various molecules. The ability to track the evolution of key molecular tracers that have different critical densities for emission could be used to predict synthetic line profiles which can be compared to observed molecular line data and extract chemical diagnostics. It is also essential to apply radiative transfer model before proposing any line information for astronomical observation. Here, we have done radiative transfer modelling of Ethylamine and propanimine for their future detection in interstellar space. Line parameters are discussed to check the observability of these species with the ALMA facility.
