Abstract

This review considers the generation of relatively simple biomolecules, e.g., primary amino acids, resulting from the rapid collapse of bubbles in aqueous solutions containing various, low molar mass, gases. Some of the possible primary reactions occurring to produce the biomolecules are introduced and discussed. A brief discussion is included on the possible involvement of hydrodynamic cavitation, at the primordial seashore, as the initiating processes for the formation of the first organic molecules on prebiotic earth and the origins of life on Earth some 4 billion years ago.
