Abstract: We aim to greatly expand our understanding of the molecular inventory of prebiotic molecules and their chemical evolution by leveraging the ngVLA's unique capabilities to detect new complex organic molecules. Informed by state-of-the-art chemical models, we will search for N, O, and S-bearing small aromatic molecules, direct amino acid precursors, biogenic species such as sugars, and chiral molecules well beyond the reach of modern facilities.
