Bromopyridine Hydrochoride and Meteorites
Country: United States
Date: Fall 2009
Why would bromopyridine hydrochoride be found in a rock
thought to be a iron meteorite?
Bromopyridine hydrochloride is a common organic intermediate. I strongly
suspect a contamination, possibly from an insecticide/herbicide. That it
came from outer space riding an iron meteorite is not very likely. If you
search the term "bromopyridine hydrochloride" you will find a lot in "hits".
