TABLE 1: Organic carbon (C) content on 0-40 cm soil layer in the fulvic acids (AF), humic acids (AH) and humin (HUM) of humic substances and sum of these three fractions (SOMA) on four situations of soil use in a Humic Dystrupept in southern Brazilian highlands.
Regarding C distribution in the stable fraction of SOM, there was a predominance of humin (Hum) in comparison to the fractions humic acid (HA) and fulvic acid (FA), regardless of the analyzed management systems and layers (Figures 1C, D, E, F, G and H).
Los Angeles, California-based social app Tinder has acquired US-based contextual relationship management platform Humin, the company said.

Initial status of organic matter fractions found were humin (0.471 g 100[g.sup.-1] soil humus), humic acid (0.295 g 100[g.sup.-1] soil humus), fulvic acid (0.173 g 100[g.sup.-1] soil humus) and humic acid : fulvic acid (HA:FA) ratio (1.705).
This is explained by either a low intake or high biological activity transforming the transitional organic products stable humin is in these soils that the process of humification is the most dominant.
Soil organic matter quality is affected by no tillage either in terms of particulate organic matter [24] or in terms of its composition of humic acids, fulvic acids, and humin [30].

The humin (insoluble part of peat) was separated as precipitate and was washed repeatedly with distilled water to separate soluble HS and dried.
On the other hand, some investigators observed that the aliphatic fraction was the dominant fraction in humin (mostly organo-mineral complex) (Rice 2001), and higher aliphatic content was observed for the inner layers of organic coatings on soil particles (Kang and Xing 2005), indicating a preferential adsorption of the aliphatic fraction on mineral/soil particles.
