A method was devised for the extraction and measurement of adenosine 5'-triphosphate (ATP) in soil that minimizes sorption of ATP on the soil colloids. Soil was ultrasonified for 1 min with a solution containing trichloracetic acid (0.5 m). disodium hydrogen orthophosphate (0.25 m) and paraquat dichloride (0.1 m). The ATP content of the filtered extract was determined without further treatment in a scintillation spectrometer by the firefly luciferin-luciferase system. Recovery of added ATP was greater using the extratant containing trichloracetic acid, orthophosphate and paraquat than with trichloracetic acid alone or with a sulphuric acid extradant. Recoveries of added ATP ranged from 45% to 84% in thirteen different soils; ATP contents from 0.64 to 9.03 μg g−1 soil.
