PROJECT SPOTLIGHT

Isotope effects and natural isotope abundance

The natural 13C- or 15N-abundance in plant and animal organic matter is near 1.09% and 0.37%. When expressed against an international standard, the isotope composition (δ13C and δ15N) is different from that in source material (atmospheric CO2, soil nitrates, food,…).

This project is open to Bachelor, Honours, Masters and PhD students
