A SEARCH FOR MILLIMETER-WAVE EMISSION FROM HCN AND OTHER MOLECULES IN COMET BRADFIELD (1979)

Abstract
Millimeter-wave emission from HCN, CS, CH3OH, and two unidentified lines (previously observed in Comet Kohoutek (1973 XII)) was sought and not detected from Comet Bradfield (1979l) after perihelion passage. Limits on column densities and production rates are derived. In the case of HCN, the production rate is less than that reported for Comet Kohoutek, even after scaling relative to the observed OH emission from each comet.
