Insoluble organic matter (IOM), the main organic constituent in chondrites, has been extensively studied after HF/HCl isolation techniques. Bulk isotopic compositions and elemental ratios show variations between chondrite groups, whereas they are quite homogeneous within each class . Recent isotopic measurements by ion probes have revealed that IOM is heterogeneous at the sub-micron scale [2,3]. Does this heterogeneity reflect parent body evolution or reactions in the gas phase prior to accretion? To answer this question, we have studied in situ organic matter in Orgueil (CI), Tagish Lake, Murchison (CM), Cold Bokkeveld (CM), Allende (CV), Renazzo (CR) and Chainpur (LL) by NanoSIMS imaging. We have determined D/H ratios and chemical composition (C, H and N contents) of organic particles in the matrices of these meteorites.
