Abstract:

Thirty-four stars were surveyed for 2.6-mm CO emission and forty-nine for 3.4-mm HCN emission. CO and HCN emission lines were detected in the directions of the carbon stars IRC10216, IRC30219, and possibly IRC000382. Preliminary measurements indicate CO source sizes approximately greater than 60sec. Extended CO emission sources were also found in the directions of the stars R Mon and T Tau. The infrared source IRC40091 LkH-alpha-101 near the H II region S 222 was also found to have CO emission. Author
