2017 Proceedings of the International Astronomical Union  
AbstractGas chemistry is typically characterized comparing integrated intensities of different molecular species. With the advent of ALMA, chemistry is now resolved not only in space but also in velocity. When observed at high spectral resolution, most of the clouds, filaments, and cores in the solar neighbourhood show a complex internal structure with multiple velocity components. This intrinsic complexity should be disentangled in order to correctly interpret their chemical properties. We
