Abstract

The excent of racemisation of the aminoacids in fossil materials provides a new method of geochronology. This paper present the principle, the chemical and kinetic basis of the method and the influence of such environmental parameters as temperature, pH, leaching. The known applications about various materials (bones, shells, sediments,...) are described and discussed. Future developments of the method are also considered.
