Abstract: The substantial heterogeneity of dissolved organic matter (DOM) inhibits detailed chromatographic analysis with conventional detectors as little structural information can be obtained in the presence of extensive coelution. Here we examine the direct hyphenation of high-performance size exclusion chromatography (HPSEC) with nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy to determine how size-distinguished fractions differ in composition. The results support the applicability of using HPSEC to generate more homo…
