Primordial Organic Chemistry. I. Compounds Resulting from Electron Irradiation of C<sup>14</sup>H<sub>4</sub>

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

C{sup 14}-labeled methane, together with a number of other presumed primordial gases of the earth's atmosphere, has been subjected to electron bombardments. The products formed have been examined by paper chromatography, ion exchange chromatography, mass spectrometry, and ultraviolet light spectrophotometry. A number of minor molecules have been specifically identified, and urea has been found as a major component in the absence of added phosphine; the formation of urea is inhibited by added phosphine. Most of the products can be accounted for as discrete molecules, even though they are as yet unidentified.
