Abstract

This short communication summarizes a global and continuous reflection on the origins of life. “Prebiotic Petroleum” assumes that “the class of most complex molecules of life that may have geochemical and abiotic origin is the class of fatty acids with long aliphatic chains” and proposes a physical process for the formation of liposomes. Developments following the workshop start from the idea that the liposomes also acquire ion exchange channels physically during their forming process.
