Introduction: Carbonaceous chondrites contain several classes of organic compounds of interest in the study of pre-biotic chemistry and the chemistry of the origin of life. Identified compounds include carboxylic acids, amino acids, amides, and sugar derivatives [1-3]. Many of these compounds are chiral, which means that they are composed of two non-superimposable mirror images (i.e., "enantiomers"). Such molecules are important on Earth because biological polymers (e.g., proteins and nucleic… CONTINUE READING
