Abstract

High spatial resolution observations were made for the 3 mm transitions of methanol (CH3OH), methyl formate (HCOOCH3), and dimethyl ether (/CH3/2O) toward Orion-KL using the Nobeyama Millimeter Array. The 15(3)-14(4) A(-) CH3OH emission appears to be elongated along the line connecting IRc2 and 'the southern condensation (SC)', which may suggest a relation between methanol and the outflow from IRc2. The HCOOCH3 (7(1,6)-6(1,5)) and (CH3)2O (15(2,13)-15(1,14)) emissions appear to be well concentrated toward SC with an angular size of about 6.5 arcsec. There also exists another oxygen-rich condensation to the west of IRc2 having column densities of HCOOCH3 and (CH3)2O comparable to those of SC. We derive the total column densities 6.8 x 10 exp 16/sq cm, 1.4 x 10 exp 16/sq cm, and 2.7 x 10 exp 16/sq cm for CH3OH, HCOOCH3, and (CH3)2O, respectively, at the core of SC.
