要旨
The Class 0 protostar, L483, has been observed in various molecular lines in the 1.2 mm band at a subarcsecond resolution with ALMA. An infalling-rotating envelope is traced by the CS line, while a very compact component with a broad velocity width is observed for the CS, SO, HNCO, NH$_2$CHO, and HCOOCH$_3$ lines. Although this source is regarded as the warm carbon-chain chemistry (WCCC) candidate source at a 1000 au scale, complex organic molecules characteristic of hot corinos such as NH$_2$CHO and HCOOCH$_3$ are detected in the vicinity of the protostar. Thus, both hot corino chemistry and WCCC are seen in L483. Although such a mixed chemical character source has been recognized as an intermediate source in previous single-dish observations, we here report the first spatially resolved detection. A kinematic structure of the infalling-rotating envelope is roughly explained by a simple ballistic model with a protostellar mass of 0.1-0.2 \M\$_☉ $ and a radius of the centrifugal barrier (half of the centrifugal radius) of 30-200 au, assuming an inclination angle of 80° (0° for face-on). The broad-line emission observed in the above molecules most likely comes from the disk component inside the centrifugal barrier. Thus, a drastic chemical change is seen around the centrifugal barrier.
