While few of the descriptors (E-state keys) relate to molar group additivity, the biggest benefit from this work is it includes many additional descriptors not pertaining to specific functional groups and more generally calculated from molecular structure--such as HOMO-LUMO energies, aromaticity, and molecular branching.
asymmetric and symmetric bands are relatively more intense in the extracted DOM resulting from combustion at the higher temperature leading to more polar residues, which tend to offset any increase in aromaticity that may have occurred.
