Abstract Amino acids, amines and aldehydes were obtained from the water extracts of two CR2 carbonaceous chondrites from Antarctica and analyzed for their molecular and 15 N isotopic content. These compounds were found to differ significantly from those of CM chondrites in both overall abundances and molecular distribution. The amino acids suites comprise a preponderant abundance of linear, 2-H amino acids, show rapid non-linear decrease with the compounds’ increasing chain length and include… CONTINUE READING
