I. Exploring molecular structures of humic substances and NOM with a use of advanced analytical technologies.
Information technologies for systematics of data on structures and properties of HS, NOM and other systems of non-living organic matter.
II. Ecosystem metabolomics: microbial and photo-transformation of of HS and NOM under conditions of changing climate and anthropogenic stress.
Role of HS in soil fertility, in mediating soil pollution, and in the soil-plant-interactions.
III. Nature-like technologies based on a smart use of humic substances for soil restoration, agriculture, fertilizer production, etc.
The school on analysis of humic substances
The school on analysis of humic substances (HS) will take place on October 17, 2017
at the Department of Chemistry of Lomonosov MSU.
Sample preparation for the elemental (CHN) analysis of HS, and determination of ratio of carbon in humic to carbon in fulvic acids using total organic carbon analyzer will be demonstrated.
