Abstract

This study assessed the effect of amendment of Australian soils (acidic, organic matter, Fe-rich, alkaline and silt-rich soils) with mobile platinum and gold (0 to 2000 mg kg(-1)) on soil respiration and the activity of seven key soil enzymes. Platinum amendment significantly reduced soil respiration at almost all concentrations (p
