Fischer-Tropsch-Type (FTT) reactions have been hypothesized to contribute to the formation of organic compounds in the early solar system, but it has been difficult to identify a signature of such reactions in meteoritic organics. The work reported here examined whether temperaturedependent carbon isotopic fractionation of FTT reactions might provide such a… CONTINUE READING
