Abstract: AbstractAt a distance of 77 Mpc, the Ultralumious galaxy Arp 220 is the closest extragalactic equivalent to Galactic hot cores. The low resolution SMA survey showed a highly excited confusion limited spectrum. The new ALMA snapshot spectral scan opens the possibility of chemically resolve the two nuclei at unprecedented sensitivity. When completed, it will be the widest survey ever done towards an extragalactic object. The model of Band 6 and 7 data already shows the chemical similarities between the interacti…
