About 160 molecules have been detected in the interstellar medium, the comae and the atmospheres of planets. The presence of these compounds leads to imagine a chemistry of these media to explain the formation of these species and to predict the possible presence of other ones. Many of them have never been synthesized or isolated in labs and their preparation can be challenging, up to necessitate news reactions or special equipments.
