[FeS/FeS2]. A redox system for the origin of life

Abstract

The FeS/FeS2 redox system, whose importance is stressed in recent theories on the origin of life, has been tested experimentally. In this paper it is demonstrated by thermodynamical calculations as well as by experiments, that cyclohexanone, which served as model compound, can be reduced by the aforementioned redox system. Reactions were carried out in… (More)
