Abstract Eighteen Norwegian NOM samples were analyzed by AFM, TEM, FCS, and CE. The TEM and AFM gave complementary, but not identical, information regarding the conformation of the NOM. A large majority of the material in all samples appeared as points with a size of approximately 2 nm or less. FCS gave values for diffusion coefficients which were in the range 2.1–3.0 × 10−10 m2 s−1. This corresponds to molecular diameters of between 1.6 and 2.0 nm, in reasonable agreement with both TEM and AFM. Electropherograms, using absorbance at 200 nm, were all dissimilar except for the Gjerstad and Hellerudmyra sample pairs, for which no major differences were observed. CE was also carried out using both fluorescence (excitation at 325, 457, and 488 nm) and UV-absorbance (200, 210, 254, and 288 nm) detection on three of the NOM samples. The different modes of detection and wavelengths gave qualitatively similar electropherograms. Calculated EPMs of the major sample components were in the range -2.0 to -5.0 10−8 m2 s−1 V−1.
