Organics in meteorites - Solar or interstellar?

  • Conel M. O'D. Alexander (a1), George D. Cody (a2), Marilyn Fogel (a2) and Hikaru Yabuta (a2)

Abstract

The insoluble organic material (IOM) in primitive meteorites is related to the organic material in interplanetary dust particles and comets, and is probably related to the refractory organic material in the diffuse interstellar medium. If the IOM is representative of refractory ISM organics, models for how and from what it formed will have to be revised.
