The formation of organic molecules on lifeless planets

Organic compounds are thought to be required for the origin of life. Although considerable progress has been made in understanding how simple organic compounds can be synthesized under simulated early solar system conditions, many questions remain: Which organic compounds are formed? How do these compounds interact with each other and the surrounding environment? How do they self-assemble into living systems? How can organic compounds serve as diagnostics for biological or abiological processes? How do organic compounds decompose in planetary environments?
