Abstract

We have taken an inventory of the elemental and isotopic abundances of major carbon- and nitrogen-bearing components in different groups of meteorites. Primary phases, inherited from the solar nebula, are frequently isotopically heterogeneous, and surprisingly resistant to modification through parent body processing. Even melted and recrystallised meteorites retain primordial carbon and nitrogen isotopic signatures.
