The CI1 Orgueil meteorite is a highly aqueously altered carbonaceous chondrite. It has been extensively studied, and despite its extensive degree of aqueous alteration and some documented instances of contamination, several indigenous organic compounds including amino acids, carboxylic acids, and nucleobases have been detected in its carbon‐rich matrix. We recently developed a novel gas chromatographic method for the enantiomeric and compound‐specific isotopic analyses of meteoritic aliphatic… 
Molecular distribution, 13C‐isotope, and enantiomeric compositions of carbonaceous chondrite monocarboxylic acids
TLDR
A novel methodology for the simultaneous analysis of the molecular distribution, compound-specific δ13C and enantiomeric compositions of aliphatic monocarboxylic acids (MCA) extracted from the hot-water extracts of sixteen carbonaceous chondrites from CM, CR, CO, CV and CK groups is developed.
Distribution of aliphatic amines in CO, CV, and CK carbonaceous chondrites and relation to mineralogy and processing history
TLDR
The low content of monoamines in pristine CO carbonaceous chondrites suggests that the initial amounts, and not asteroidal processes, play a dominant role in the content of Monoamines in carbonaceous Chondrites.

Pathways to Meteoritic Glycine and Methylamine.
TLDR
This work examines potential synthetic routes of glycine and methylamine from a common set of precursors present in carbonaceous chondrite meteorites, using data from laboratory analyses of the well-studied CM2 meteorite Murchison and aims to contextualize the current knowledge about gas-phase reactions and irradiated ice grain chemistry for the synthesis of these species through parent body processes.

Abstract— We have analyzed an important fraction of the free carboxylic acids present in water extracts of the CM2 chondrite Murchison and the CI1 chondrite Orgueil using gas chromatographymass
The Chiral Amines of the Murchison Meteorite: A Preliminary Characterization
L-enantiomeric excesses have been determined for some amino acids of the Murchison and Murray meteorites [1-4]. The finding has taken a particular significance in view of the homochiral distribution
Enrichment of the amino acid l-isovaline by aqueous alteration on CI and CM meteorite parent bodies
TLDR
The large asymmetry in isovaline and other α-dialkyl amino acids found in altered CI and CM meteorites suggests that amino acids delivered by asteroids, comets, and their fragments would have biased the Earth's prebiotic organic inventory with left-handed molecules before the origin of life.
Physical Sciences: Evidence for Amino-acids of Extraterrestrial Origin in the Orgueil Meteorite
TLDR
The problems of separation of contaminant from indigenous amino-acids in meteorites can be largely overcome by applying gas chromatographic techniques for the separation of D, L enantiomers of amino-ACids as their diastereomeric derivatives and the identification of these compounds by gas Chromatographic retention times and mass spectral fragmentation patterns.
Large enantiomeric excesses in primitive meteorites and the diverse effects of water in cosmochemical evolution
TLDR
It is found that several CR compounds are fully represented in stones with no or minimal water exposure indicating a formation that, if solar, preceded parent body processes, and the most pristine CRs also revealed natal enantiomeric excesses of up to 60%, much larger than ever recorded.
