Prebiotic synthesis of 2-deoxy-D-ribose from interstellar building blocks promoted by amino esters or amino nitriles

Prebiotic synthesis of 2-deoxy-D-ribose from interstellar building blocks promoted by amino esters or amino nitriles

Amino esters and amino nitriles can promote the selective formation of 2-deoxy-D-ribose from materials present in interstellar ices. The use of amino nitriles suggests the possibility that carbohydrates may have existed before amino acids on the prebiotic Earth.
