A non-destructive method (solid state 13CNMR) for determining organic chemical components of decomposing litter



A non-destructive method (solid state 13CNMR) for determining organic chemical components of decomposing litter



Soil Biology and Biochemistry 22(2): 271-275



13C CP/MAS NMR spectra were measured in order to identity and quantify various forms of carbon in decomposing litter. The Klason-lignin content was also determined by conventional techniques. Quantitatively, the NMR results showed a decrease in carbohydrates as litter decomposition proceeded. An initial increase in polymethylene resonances levelled off in highly decomposed samples.
