These extremely stable organic molecules
contain rings of carbon atoms and are widespread on Earth.
The organic molecules
found by the team were in a drilled sample of the Sheepbed mudstone in Gale crater, the landing site for the Curiosity rover.
We can say with confidence that these organic molecules
came from the individual animals whose remains we tested.
The Herschel Space Observatory said Thursday that its telescopes heterodyne instrument for the far infrared -- one of Herschel's three innovative instruments -- demonstrates the gold mine of information that Herschel will provide on how organic molecules
form in space.
The third edition of this synthetic organic chemistry textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate students has been expanded to include new information on transition metals such as novel reactions, new catalysts, ligands, reaction conditions and the applications in synthesis of complex organic molecules
Yet, the process or processes by which non-living organic molecules
turn into life are still unknown to science.
They recovered a variety of organic molecules
, including fatty acids such as those found in cell membranes.
Lightweight organic molecules
and ammonia, which are volatilized in the evaporator, are oxidized by a high-temperature catalytic oxidation reactor, converting these organics into carbon dioxide, water, and nitrous oxide.
The possibility of occasional impacts from head disk collisions requires that the adhesive strength of the organic molecules
be increased while retaining the mobility of some of the molecules.
We also cover peracids, which we consider as organic molecules
containing active oxygen.
It took just a few thousand years - a mere pinprick of time in cosmological terms - for large, complex organic molecules
to evolve in the gas shells remaining, astronomers said.
The finding, from instruments on the Galileo spacecraft orbiting Jupiter, suggests that Europa may have all three of the ingredients scientists consider essential for life: an energy source, liquid water and organic molecules
, said planetary scientist Thomas B.
