Oparin also devoted considerable effort to enzymology and helped to develop the foundations of industrial biochemistry in the USSR. When he was nine years old, his family oparun to Moscow because there was no secondary school in their village. He attended Moscow State University, majoring in plant physiology, where he was influenced by K. He graduated from the Moscow State University inand became a professor of biochemistry there in Haldane was independently proposing a similar theory.

As early asat a meeting of the Russian Botanical Society, he had first introduced his concept of a primordial organism arising in a brew of already-formed organic compounds.

Oparin, A. I. (Aleksandr Ivanovich) 1894-1980

He asserted the following tenets:. Oparin showed how organic chemicals in solution may spontaneously form droplets and layers, and outlined a way in which basic organic chemicals might form into microscopic localized systems possible precursors of cells from which primitive living things could develop.


He suggested that different types of coacervates might have formed in the Earth’s primordial ocean and, subsequently, been subject to a selection process, eventually leading to life. His proposal that life developed effectively by chance, through a progression from simple to complex self-duplicating organic compounds, initially met with strong opposition, but has since received experimental support such as the famous experiments of Stanley Miller and Harold Urey at the University of Chicagoand has been accepted as a legitimate hypothesis by the scientific community.

InOparin helped found the A. He became a corresponding member of the USSR Academy of Sciences inand a full member inand he served as director of the Institute of Biochemistry from until his death. Oparin organized the first international meeting on the origin of life in Moscow inwhich was to be followed by other meetings in and in He received the Lenin Prize in and the Lomonosov Gold Medal in “for outstanding achievements in biochemistry”.

He was also awarded five Orders of Lenin, the highest decoration bestowed by the Soviet Union. See the additional sources and recommended reading list below, or check the physics books page for a full list.
