dc.description.abstract Cometary molecules specifically targeted for observation with the BIMA Array during the 1997 apparition of comet Hale-Bopp included HCN, $HCO^{+}$, and CS, but because the BIMA Array has a very flexible, wideband $spectrometer^{a}$, many other species had transitions in the bandpass which could be observed simultaneously with the target molecules. We discuss the results of these ``search'' observations which included transitions of $AlCl, CO, {^{13}}CS, {^{34}}SO, SiO, {^{29}}SiS, C_{2}H, C_{2}S, HCS^{+}, H^{15}NC, MgNC, OCS, SO_{2}, {^{33}}SO_{2}, {^{34}}SO_{2}, Si^{13}CC; C_{3}H, C_{3}S, HOCO^{+}, C_{3}H_{2}, C_{4}H, HC_{3}N, C_{5}H, CH_{3}CN, CH^{13}_{3}CN, CH_{3}OH, NH_{2}CHO, C_{6}H, CH_{2}CHCN, HCOCH_{3}, HCOOCH_{3}, (CH_{3})_{2}O, CH_{3}CH_{2}OH$, and $HC_{7}N$ (here, a molecular formula with no mass number denotes the main isotopomer). This work was partially funded by: NASA NAG5-4292, NAG5-4080, and NGT5-0083; NSF AST 96-13998, AST96-13999, AST96-13716, and AST96-15608; Taiwanese grants NSC 86-2112-M-003-T and 87-2112-M-003-007; and the Universities of Illinois, Maryland, and California, Berkeley. en_US
