Abstract- The effect of heat on the reaction system of glycine - glutamic acid and glycine- leucine at 90 50C has been investigated in aqueous environment in the presence of montmorillonite clay with or without divalent cations Ca2 Cu2 and Mg2 under prebiotic wetting-drying cycles of primitive earth. The resulting products were analyzed by paper chromatography UV as well as by High Performance Liquid Chromatography. Formation of peptides seems to depend on the nature of the reactant amino acids duration of heating as well as on montmorillonite clay incorporated with divalent cations. In glycineglutamic acid oligomerization of glycine was limited upto tetramer level Gly4 along with the formation of glycyl-glutamic acid whereas reaction system of glycineleucine gave peptides up to tetramer level Gly4 and showed the formation of Leucyl-Glycine Leu- Gly. Thus the formation of peptides from the above reaction system reveal that incorporation of metal ions on clay M surface enhance the catalytic activity by ion-dipole interaction of cations with dipolar amino acid Zwitter-ions.
