Chemical evolution of the citric acid cycle: sunlight photolysis of alpha-ketoglutaric acid.

Abstract

Sunlight photolysis of alpha-ketoglutaric acid produces succinic acid as a major product. Other higher molecular weight products are identified by GC-MS analysis. These results provide further support for the important role of succinic acid in chemical evolution.
