Recent observations of the long period comet C/2016 R2 (PanSTARRS) indicate an unusually high N2/CO abundance ratio, typically larger than ∼0.05, and at least 2–3 times higher than the one measured in 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. Another striking compositional feature of this comet is its heavy depletion in H2O (H2O/CO ∼0.32%), compared to other comets. Here, we investigate the formation circumstances of a generic comet whose composition reproduces these two key features. We first envisage the…
