We have constructed a model for chemistry in the outflow of an asymptotic giant branch (AGB) star, using a spheroidal anisotropy in density, after that used by Jura. The predicted distributions of a selection of representative species are shown, and it is suggested that the abundance distributions observed by interferometry in IRC + 10216 may be the result of directional variation in outflow velocity.
