FeSt 1-457 is a prototypical starless core and the most chemically evolved among those isolated, embedded in the most pristine part of the Pipe nebula, the bowl. We use the IRAM 30m telescope and the PdBI to study the chemical and physical properties of the starless core FeSt 1-457 (Core 109) in the Pipe nebula. We fit the hyperfine structure of the N2H+ (1-0) IRAM 30m data. This allowed us to measure with high precision the velocity field, line widths and opacity and derive the excitation temperature and column density in the core. We used a modified Bonnor-Ebert sphere model adding a temperature gradient towards the center to fit the 1.2mm continuum emission and visual extinction maps. Using this model, we have estimated the abundances of the N2H+ and the rest of molecular lines detected in the 30GHz wide line survey performed at 3mm with IRAM 30m using ARTIST software. Description: IRAM 30m (FTS correlator) and PdBI 3mm observations towards the starless core FeSt 1-457 in the Pipe nebula. Dense core tracer N2H+ (1-0) was observed with a better spectral resolution with the IRAM 30m VESPA correlator (0.06km/s).
