Terminology of Humus Materials

Fulvates are the salts of fulvic acid.

Fulvic acid is the acid radical found in humic matter which is soluble in alkali, acid, methyl ethyl ketone, and methyl alcohol.

Humates are the salts of humic acids, collectively, or the salts of humic acid specifically. (The usage must be determined from the context.)

Humic acid (singular) is the acid radical found in humic matter which is soluble in alkali but insoluble in acid, methyl ethyl ketone, and methyl alcohol.

Humic acids (plural) is the collective name for the acid radicals found in humic matter. They may be separated from humic matter by alkaline extraction.

Humin is the alkali-insoluble fraction of leonardite. (The usage of this term does not correspond exactly with the usage by other workers.) .

Humus is the product of the decay of organic matter. It contains both humic and nonhumic material.

Leonardite is a soft brown coal-like deposit usually found in conjunction with deposits of lignite located in the Dakotas.

Lignite is a type of soft coal.
