Abstract

There are compelling reasons to believe that the initial atmosphere of the earth after its formation about 4.7 × 109 years ago was a reducing one consisting chiefly of methane, ammonia, water, and hydrogen (1). In the last two decades considerable research has been described in which numerous organic precursors of biopolymers have been synthesized under conditions simulating the primitive earth and its atmosphere (for a review see ref. 2). Formaldehyde and hydrogen cyanide are known to be formed so readily under a variety of these conditions that they are considered not only as products of ancient chemical evolution but as likely precursors of a variety of important components of the prebiotic soup, including sugars, amino acids, and purine bases (2).
