Fission tracks in enantiomorphic minerals as a putative key to biomolecular chirogenesis

Project Details

Description

The project includes neutron irradiation, etching and infiltration experiments with dissolved mixtures of biomolecules, and chemical analysis of right-handed and left-handed molecular species by GCxGC/TOF mass spectrometry.

The project is dedicated to the revelation of uranium fission tracks in minerals which occur in a left-handed and right-handed form.
