Probing Non-polar Interstellar Molecules through Their Protonated Form: Detection of Protonated Cyanogen (NCCNH<sup>+</sup>),
Astron. Astrophys. 579, Art. No. L10 (2015).
The J = 10 – 9 and 5 – 4 transitions near 88.8 and 44.4 GHz were detected in emission toward the dark cloud TMC-1 (cyanopolyyne peak) and the young stellar object IRAS 18148–0440 in the L483 dense core. The former transition was observed with the IRAM 30 m telescope, the latter with the Yebes 40 m telescope.

Abundant Z-cyanomethanimine in the Interstellar Medium: Paving the Way to the Synthesis of Adenine
Mon. Not. R. Soc. Astron. 483, L114–L119 (2019).
The authors also detected HNCCN+ in two transitions. The results were obtained in the course of a line survey of the Galactic center source G 0.693–0.03 at 3 mm using the IRAM 30 m dish; additional observation around 1.3 cm were carried out with the GBT 100 m dish. The source is kinitically fairly warm, but the excitation temperature is rather cold, about 10 K.
