  • Sulfur is a versatile molecule with oxidation states ranging from −2 to +6. From the beginning, sulfur has been inexorably entwined with the evolution of organisms. Reduced sulfur, prevalent in the prebiotic Earth and supplied from interstellar sources, was an integral component of early life as it could provide energy through oxidization, even in a weakly oxidizing environment, and it spontaneously reacted with iron to form iron–sulfur clusters that became the earliest biological catalysts and… CONTINUE READING
