Infrared spectra of carbonaceous chondrites and the composition of intertellar grains

  • A. Zaikowski
  • R. F. Knacke


Infrared spectra (7–40 μ) of the carbonaceous chondrites, Cold Bokkeveld, Murray, and Orgueil are compared with phyllosilicate minerals and interstellar grain spectra. Similarities in the position and shape of the silicate feature near 9.8 μ suggest that similar silicate minerals are present in primitive meteorites and the interstellar dust.
