Evaluation of colorimetric assays for determination of H 2 O 2 in planta during fungal wood decomposition

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

4 Scopus citations


Hydrogen peroxide (H 2 O 2 ) plays a critical role in generating oxygen radicals as fungi attack and deconstruct plant cell walls. Its concentrations in planta, however, are often low during decomposition and evade detection by traditional methods. Here, we compared relevant methods and selected the best based on detection limits and selectivity.
