Hi to all plant.bionet group members

I'm currently trying to determine the best procedure for burning plant material through wet digestion in Nitric:Perchloric mixtures

My problem is that digestion of 100mg of pepper leaves in 5 ml of digestion mixture already conducts to precipitate formation after

I'd like to know whether someone has already seen this precipitate, and what is its composition. Also, any idea which could help me

Thanks in advance.
