Abstract The aim of numerous works of author is the creation of simplified thermodynamic model the origin of life, its evolution and the aging of living beings. During the creation of this model the author has used a variety of approximation and postulates. These approximations and postulates were justified from the standpoint of dynamic quasi-equilibrium […]
Thermodynamics allows the formation of abiotic (prebiotical) molecules directly into the depths of earth and during underwater and terrestrial eruptions. The formation of HCN and other abiogenous molecules observed in electrical discharges, especially during the eruption of volcanoes. It was found that the synthesis of adenine and many other primary prebiotic molecules on a young and modern earth is beneficial from the standpoint of thermodynamics. As a result of actions of the structural stabilization and the principle of substance stability the purine and pyrimidine nucleobases can exist during relatively long time and be involved to the metabolism of living organisms. Some complex supramolecular structures – harbingers of life appear and in our time. However, these structures can be eaten by modern organisms, which prevent the formation of new forms of life.
Thermodynamically stable molecules with strong chemical bonds absorb energy from the sun (or other energy sources). These simple molecules (N2, CO2, H2O, etc.) share out their excess free energy with other molecules and redistribute this energy between them. Usually these simple molecules are combined to form a more complex substance. This association leads to a […]
The principle of substance stability for abiogenesis and origin of life can be understood from the view-point of thermodynamics of formation of crystal molecular structures and structures of liquid crystals.
