Can deuteration be used as a chemical clock in protostellar cores

Schleicher, Dominik

Measuring deuteration fraction in protostellar cores is considered as an important method for age determinations of protostellar cores, and the high deuteration fraction of up to 10% has been considered as evidence for high ages and strong support via magnetic field. In this talk, I will present 3D magneto-hydrodynamical simulations including the deuteration chemistry to explore how the deuteration fraction depends on the dynamical and chemical conditions. I will show that high deuteration fractions can be obtained under a large set of different conditions.
