Abstract:We will present an overview of the GOTHAM (GBT Observations of TMC-1: Hunting Aromatic Molecules) and ARKHAM (A Rigorous K-band Hunt for Aromatic Molecules) projects on the 100 m Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope, and a number of first results. These observations, prompted by our earlier detection of benzonitrile (c-\chem{C_6H_5CN}) in TMC-1, are designed to probe the extent of hidden chemical complexity at the earliest stages of the star formation process. We will discuss the detections of new molecules in TMC-1, comment on the prospects for probing additional aromatic chemistry in this source, and examine the apparently widespread nature of benzonitrile through the early protostellar phase of star formation.
