We present Monte Carlo preliminary results about the feasibility to detect the Chic family in p-p collisions at 14 TeV in the ALICE Central Barrel at CERN LHC. The Chic1 and Chic2 were forced to decay in the channel J/Psi + gamma -> e+ e- + gamma and were merged with a proton-proton non-biased collision. After MonteCarlo transport and simulation of the detector response, the e+, e- and converted gamma were reconstructed and identified in the ALICE ITS, TPC and TRD detectors. Separate signals
