Abstract
The application of organic amendments in soils of urban areas (gardens, parks, etc.) and in other sectors such as agriculture is a common practice since they provide organic matter and nutrients and therefore help to improve fertility. However, it is important to analyze its chemical composition in order to determine effect produced on the mobility and bioavailability of contaminants in soils, because depending on the amendment can have contradictory effects.The objective of this work is to study the components of different organic amendments (commercial humic acids and sheep and horse manure compost) by NMR 13C CPMAS, since in both cases, it has been found that when arevused in combination with different plant species such as Vetiveria zizanioides and Atriplex halimux forvphytoremediation of soils contaminated with heavy metals, immobilization of the same occurs. Furthermore it has been determined by spectroscopic analysis of mixtures of amendments withvdifferent concentrations of metals that functional groups of these amendments are involved in thevretention of metals.
