1] (the wide range given by the difference between the humic and humin acid fractions from the basal date).
The fractions of humu-Fe/Al complexes and humin were rarely included in soil humus fractionation schemes, even though they may account for a substantial portion of soil organic matter.
The humin fraction was the greatest in all management systems, representing between 60% (DP) and 66% (HS) of the TOC in the 0-10 cm layer, and between 58% (HSDP) and 68% (DP) in the 10-20 cm layer (Table 5).
The low aromatic content of the humin may be attributed to the concentration in this fraction of the hydrophobic, not readily oxidised non-aromatic resin acids and long-chain waxes.
