Example text

The study by Finch et al. (1967) has shown ways by which polysaccharides that interact with clays can be isolated. However, there must be the will to persist in extended studies, such as those that engaged Cheshire and his colleagues at the Macaulay Institute, if this important area of SOM studies is to be advanced. There was considerable emphasis on soil polysaccharides during the period between the late 1940s and the mid-1980s, but interest has not been maintained. These studies were carried out in an era when the instrumentation needed for rapid advances was limited.

2005) have reviewed relevant aspects of the chemistry and compositions of polysaccharides and have discussed the reactivities of saccharides in the soil environment. Interest in soil saccharides, and especially in soil polysaccharides, is relatively recent, and their studies may be considered to be in the modern era of soil organic matter research. Martin (1945, 1946) established that the “slimy” bacterial products 22 EVOLUTION OF CONCEPTS shown by Waksman and Martin (1939) to aggregate sand–clay mixtures were polysaccharides.

It was suggested that the mechanism by which nature slows the mineralisation of organic matter might involve the accumulation of an ill-defined, amorphous and heterogenous mixture of organic molecules (Swaby and Ladd, 1966; MacCarthy and Rice, 1991; Rice, 2001). This mixture would require either a very large assemblage of enzymes or an uncharacteristically versatile enzyme to effect its rapid mineralisation (Rice, 2001). When considered from this perspective, humin has a significant role as a sink for carbon.
