We present a chemical systematic study of the Class I object SVS13- A obtained in the framework of two IRAM Large Programs: ASAI (Astrochemical Survey At IRAM-30m) with the 30m and SOLIS (Seeds Of Life In Space) with NOEMA. Thanks to the ASAI high-sensitivity unbiased spectral survey of the 3, 2 and 1.3mm bands, we detect and analyse several emission lines from deuterated species and interstellar complex organic molecules (iCOMs, e.g. molecules composed by 6 or more atoms and based on carbon). Within SOLIS, we obtain high-sensitivity and high-spatial resolution (∼ 180 au) maps of crucial iCOMs. As a follow up, thanks to ALMA we explore the chemistry in the planet forming region (∼ 50 au). We image emission lines from methanol (CH3OH), acetaldehyde (CH3CHO), formamide (NH2CHO) and dimethyl ether (CH3OCH3). The different spatial distributions suggest a chemical differentiation inside the binary system or a different continuum opacity in the two protostellar disks.
