Possible formation of organics in simulated planetary (primiive Earth, Titan, etc.) atmospheres and in ice mantles of interstellar dusts was examined by high energy particles irradiation. The results suggested that amino acid precursors with high molecular weights could be formed in primitive Earth, Titan and molecular clouds.
