Abstract

Fe-Ni systematics in quenched angrites and two old eucrites were investigated by secondary ion mass spectrometry. The Ni-Ni isotopic compositions were normal within 2σ errors. The inferred initial Fe-Fe ratios for quenched angrites was 6±9× 10, and similar upper limit values were also obtained from eucrites. Using the age difference of approximately 5 Ma between the quenched angrites and Ca−Al-rich inclusions, the initial Fe-Fe ratio at the start of the solar system was calculated to be approximately 6±9× 10. This initial ratio is significantly smaller than previously published values obtained from chondritic materials, suggesting the heterogeneous distribution of Fe in the solar nebula.
