Photochemically formed 'Jeewanu' nanocrystals resemble protocells in the 1:2:1:1 Jeewanu combination (1970). By using both an optical microscope and an electron probe microscope, researchers were able to see that 'Jeewanu' had a well-defined structural structure and exhibit several features typical of organic orders. Histopathological studies reveal the subcellular localisation of substances of biological importance and demonstrate enzyme-like activity. The 'Jewanu combination' provides the best environment for a simple protocell like structure to self-assemble and organise.
'Jeewanu' structural properties, resembling protocells, were shown to develop by photochemical means in a combination of 1:2:1:1. They are distinctly structured and histopathology evidence for the localisation of chemicals of organic nature was found. Jeewanu meets the minimum life criterion proposed by Gantiand the optimum criteria proposed by Pohorille and Deamer (2002). According to Robinson Smith , the first energy transmission mechanism was likely photoautotropic, like Jeewanu. Consciousness, personality, and the development of a minimum protocell-like system are all possible in a sterile aqueous combination of various inorganic and organic components exposed to sunlight .
