D-amino acids are far less abundant in nature than L-amino acids. Both L- and D-amino acids enter soil from different sources including plant, animal and microbial biomass, antibiotics, faeces and synthetic insecticides. Moreover, D-amino acids appear in soil due to abiotic or biotic racemization of L-amino acids. Both L- and D-amino acids occur as bound in soil organic matter and as “free“ amino acids dissolved in soil solution or exchangeably bound to soil colloids. D-amino acids are… CONTINUE READING
