Pre-Enzymic Emergence of Biochemical Metabolism

  • R. Buvet

Abstract

Since the concept of chemical evolution was expressed by Alexander Ivanovitch Oparin (1) for the first time fifty years ago, this concept has gradually changed its prime significance. Primarily, it was frequently understood as simply permitting the emergence of life on the Earth and any other proper planetary surfaces. It has become nowadays really fit for explaining the origin and nature of life.
