Original Abstract

The chemical processes initiated by electrical discharges in prebiotic atmospheres became a hot topic during the last decade because of extensive discovering of exo-planets. The biggest atmospheric data collection is about Saturn’s moon Titan atmosphere that is composed mainly from nitrogen and methane at low temperature of about 94 K. The presented contribution gives the first measurement of the main compounds formed in glow discharge at atmospheric pressure in nitrogen-methane gaseous mixture containing traces of oxygen and carbon dioxide at the relevant temperature. Results show very complex chemistry in these mixtures leading to the formation of currently considered direct life precursors like formamide.
