Abstract

We present preliminary results of an spectral-line survey at 1, 2, and 3 mm of the galactic center cloud Sgr B2(N). With the current data, several simple prebiotic molecules have been conclusively identified, while several more complex molecules have not. When complete, this survey will provide an accurate database of the gas-phase organic inventory in Sgr B2(N).
