We propose a scenario for the dynamic co-evolution of peptides and energy on the primitive Earth. From a multi component system consisting of hydrogen cyanide, several carbonyl compounds, ammonia, alkyl amine, carbonic anhydride, borate and isocyanic acid, we show that the reversibility of this system leads to several intermediate nitriles, that(More)
Amino acid N-carboxyanhydrides (NCA), convenient monomer for polypeptide synthesis, are easily prepared in high purity as the result of N-carbamoyl amino acids (CAA) nitrosation by gaseous NOx (4:1 NO + O2 mixture, or NOCl) in toluene. Removal of polar side products is then efficiently carried out during subsequent work-up and crystallisation so that the(More)
