Prebiotic synthesis of methionine

Science

Nov 24, 1972

J E Van Trump, S L Miller

Abstract

Methionine has been shown to be a product of the action of a spark discharge on a simulated primitive earth atmosphere containing CH(4), N(2), NH(3), H(2)O, and H(2)S or CH(3)SH. Acrolein has also been shown to be a product of the discharge and is proposed as an intermediate in the preb...read more
