Environmental significance of dissolved organic matter in soils: A review

Amrutha KK and Beena VI
Dissolved organic matter (DOM) is an important constituent of soil solution that plays a role in many chemical and biological processes in soils. Dissolved organic matter (DOM) is defined as the organic matter fraction in solution that passes through a 0.45 mm filter. It has important roles in the biogeochemical cycles of carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus, sulphur, etc. so that increasing attention has been paid on the study of soil DOM. The effects of DOM on environmental behaviours of nutrient elements, heavy metals, agrochemicals in soils were related to the physico-chemical characteristics of these substances, DOM, and soil. The present review aims to investigate the environmental significance of dissolved organic matter in relation to the mobilization of nutrients, complexation of heavy metals, partitioning of organic pesticides, gaseous emission and environmental pollution.
