His most recent publication (I believe is):

	PNAS 89(17):8117-8120  1992
	Bloechl, E, Keller, M., Waechtershaeuser, G., & Stetter, KS.
	Reactions depending on iron sulfide and linking geochemistry
        with biochemistry.

This paper cites a number of his other papers.


There was a strong critique of Waechtershaeser's work in PNAS a while
back, and I believe Urey was a co-author, but I haven't found it yet.
