High Phenols in Humic Chemistry

At this point, no scientists have been able to provide a descriptive and definitive molecular picture of humic substances. They are polydispersed polyanions and are supermixtures of many different acids containing carboxylate and phenolate groups and others, so that mixtures behave functionally as dibasic or tribasic acids. Humic acids can form complexes with ions that…

Humic Acid: Humified Carbon vs. New Carbon

Based on research, humic substances are formed as follows: Lignin Modification Quinone Acid Interactions Microbial Synthesis of Aromatics Sugar Amino Acid Reaction Sequences However, it takes thousands of years of these reactions, coupled with lignin dissolution, to form large complex polymers. These polymers have their own kenetic & bio-signatures which has allowed scientists to study…

Synthetic nitrogen fertilizers

One of the main reasons for the differences in soil carbon between organic and conventional systems is that synthetic nitrogen fertilizers degrade soil carbon. Research shows a direct link between the application of synthetic nitrogenous fertilizers and decline in soil carbon. Scientists from the University of Illinois analyzed the results of a 50-year agricultural trial…
