Abstract: AbstractWe report progress on research relating to 36.2 GHz extragalactic class I methanol masers, including a review of published work and new observations at high angular resolution. These observations reveal that extragalactic class I masers are excited in shocked gas and maybe associated with starbursts, galactic-scale outflows from active galactic nuclei (AGNs) feedback, or the inner-end region of the galactic bar. The current observational results suggests that extragalactic class I methanol masers provi…
