Abstract: In this short communication, we report on three striking phenomena of the circadian rhythm. One was observed with the non-linear concentration changes of the monomeric L-Cys and the non-linear yields of the L-Cys derived peptides, when undergoing spontaneous non-linear peptidization. The other one was observed with the binary L-Phe-L-Pro system, and the third one with L-Ser, D-Ser, and DL-Ser. So far, no analogous reports have been released on the circadian rhythm of the spontaneous non-linear peptidization of proteinogenic amino acids in a sterile abiotic environment (70% aqueous acetonitrile, or 70% aqueous methanol solutions). At the moment, we cannot find any rational explanation of this phenomenon, yet it seems highly probable that its origin is analogous to or even of a primordial nature for the circadian rhythm phenomena abundantly found in biological samples by other researchers. An experimentally established lack of the circadian rhythm with peptidization of the non-proteinogenic amino acid (DSer) can encourage us to revisit a still unsolved question of homochirality preconditions.
