Miller-Urey Experiment

By Stephen Mininni and John Hanes


If you use inorganic compunds and conditions present in earth's early atomosphere, then you can engender amino acids.


Miller and Urey used water, ammonia, methane, and hydrogen placed in a loop of glass tubes.


After analyzing the water Miller and Urey found that it contained 11 ot of 20 amino acids, proving orgaic compounds can be produced from inorgainc compounds.
