AbstractOH absorption is currently the only viable way to detect OH molecules in non-masing galaxies at cosmological distances. There have been only six such detections at z > 0.05 to date and so it is hard to put a statistically robust constraint on OH column densities in distant galaxies. We carried out a pilot OH absorption survey towards eight associated and one intervening HI 21-cm absorbers using the Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical radio Telescope (FAST). We were able to constrain the OH abundance relative to HI ([OH]/[HI]) to be lower than 10(-6) similar to 10(-8) for redshifts Z is an element of [0.1919, 0.2241]. Although no individual detection was made, stacking three associated absorbers free of RFI provides a sensitive OH column density 3 sigma upper-limit similar to 1.57 x 10(14) (T-x(OH)/ 10 K)(1/f(c)(OH))cm(-2), which corresponds to a [OH]/[HI] < 5.45 x 10(-8). Combining with archival data, we show that associated absorbers have a slightly lower OH abundance than intervening absorbers. Our results are consistent with a trend of decreasing OH abundance with decreasing redshift.
