Abstract

The normal gas phase chemistry of dense interstellar clouds is strongly affected by the process of star formation. Three mechanisms in which star formation impacts the chemistry of the surrounding material have been discussed in the literature. These are: evaporation of grain mantles due to heating, mixing of material driven by stellar winds into the ambient interstellar gas, and interstellar shock waves. There is evidence for each of these mechanisms in the Orion Molecular Cloud and it also appears that the mechanisms operate in physically distinct sections of the cloud.
