Abstract: High spatial resolution images of PNe have shown their extremely complexmorphology. However, the circumstellar envelopes of their progenitors, the AGBstars, are strikingly spherical. In order to understand the carving processesleading to axisymmetric nebulae, we are carrying out a study of a large sampleof pre-PNe. Our emission model of the nebular molecular gas 12CO and 13CO willallow us to determine important physical parameters mass, linear momentum,kinetic energy of the fast bipolar and slow spherical nebular componentsseparately. We will study in an innovative way the properties for each sourceindividually, and put our results in an evolutionary context with the help ofthe data obtained by us and collected from the literature.
