Abstract: AbstractMethanol masers at 6.7 GHz are the brightest of class II methanol masers and have been found exclusively towards massive star forming regions. These masers can thus be used as a unique tool to probe the early phases of massive star formation. We present here the SED studies of 284 methanol masers chosen from the MMB catalogue, which falls in the Hi-GAL range (|l| ≤ 60°, |b| ≤ 1°). The masers are studied using the ATLASGAL, MIPSGAL and Hi-GAL data at wavelengths ranging from 24−870 micrometers. A single…
