Due to extensive theoretical and experimental researches into the origin of life performed during the last decades (1–3), it has become an undoubted fact that life has evolved in the course of a long-term chemical evolution of matter (4). Spectacular achievements in the field of experimental abiogenic synthesis of different classes of organic compounds, vitally important for life, have convincingly shown that the materialistic approach to the elucidation of origin of life holds great promise (5).
