Autocatalytic reactions may have played a crucial role in the formation of ribonucleotide building blocks, a key component of RNA, on early Earth. Integrating autocatalysis into the formose reaction, a chemical pathway, could have potentially produced more stable ribonucleotides in the complex conditions of the early Earth. The study not only sheds light on the connection between the formose reaction and ribonucleotide production, but also explores the potential industrial applications of autocatalytic reactions. #science #nature #earth #life
