Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Effect of mechanical treatment of peat on the yield of the major fractions (polysaccharides, polyphenols, water-soluble compounds, and humic acids) and catalytic activity of humic substances in oxidation processes is studied. Conditions of formation of substances with the maximal antioxidant and initiating activities are determined. The antioxidant and initiating activities of the polysaccharide and humic fractions is studied, in relation to the structure and iron content.
