Posted on 9. August, 2014.

The problem of how a mixture of chemicals can spontaneously transform themselves into even a simple living organism remains one of the great outstanding challenges to science. Various primordial soup theories have been proposed in which chemical self-organization brings about the required level of complexity.

Free from the archives - The origin of life I: When and where did it begin? 

Posted on 8. August, 2014.

For decades most scientists assumed that life emerged billions of years ago in a “primordial soup” somewhere on the Earth’s surface. Evidence is mounting, however, that life may have begun deep beneath the surface, perhaps near a volcanic ocean vent or even inside the hot crust itself. Since there are hints that life’s history on Earth extends back through the phase of massive cosmic bombardment, it may be that life started on Mars and came here later, perhaps inside rocks ejected from the Red Planet by large impacts.

The Tollens test for aldehydes has been used for over 100 years but no reason has been given for adding sodium hydroxide to the silver nitrate before the solution is cleared with ammonia. In this paper, a mechanism is proposed which explains why the addition of alkali makes the test much more sensitive.
