Phosphorus is a key element in many biological molecules including nucleic acids such as DNA and RNA, energy storage molecules like ATP, membrane phospholipids and coenzymes. The Abbott-Lyon laboratory is investigating the reaction pathways by which phosphorus contained in the mineral schreibersite (Fe2NiP) can be activated to form C-O-P and C-P linkages.
