Energetics of Amino Acid Synthesis in Alkaline Hydrothermal Environments

  title={Energetics of Amino Acid Synthesis in Alkaline Hydrothermal Environments},
  author={Norio Kitadai},
  journal={Origins of Life and Evolution of Biospheres},
Alkaline hydrothermal systems have received considerable attention as candidates for the origin and evolution of life on the primitive Earth. Nevertheless, sufficient information has not yet been obtained for the thermodynamic properties of amino acids, which are necessary components for life, at high temperatures and alkaline pH. These properties were estimated using experimental high-temperature volume and heat capacity data reported in the literature for several amino acids, together with… CONTINUE READING
