The researchers therefore looked at a variety of materials that may have existed in the pre-life Earth that can form coacervates
-- membraneless protocells -- and then allowed critical functions like sequestering the building blocks of RNA and bringing together RNA enzymes and their targets.

Sashie's work revolves around the belief that the coacervate
is a universal model and basis for all systems and organisms, simple and complex.

Furthermore, there are indications of critical concentrations for each of these components and that in the entangled region, the modulus of the coacervate
is that of a crosslinked gel, whereas in the dilute region, the coacervate
is a viscous liquid.

He said that this synthetic glue is based on complex coacervates
, an ideal but so far unused method for making injectable adhesives.
