A highly soluble organic phenol found in humus that chelates elemental mineral nutrients.
- By comparing weights of extracted organic matter fractions (glomalin, humic acid, fulvic acid, and particulate organic matter), Nichols found four times more glomalin than humic acid.
- Preliminary findings suggest that rotenone or the humic and fulvic acid treatments can slightly reduce staining.
- Organomineralization has also been used to denote early diagenetic precipitation triggered by residual organic compounds such as fulvic acids, an area not treated here.
