Description

Data from the publication "Cell wall O-acetyl and methyl esterification patterns of leaves reflected in atmospheric emission signatures of acetic acid and methanol", PLOS ONE, Dewhirst et al 2020. The data set is the first to quantitatively link atmospheric emissions of methanol and acetic acid from leaves of bioenergy trees to cell wall methylation and acetylation patterns. The data consists of raw GC-MS and PTR-MS files quantifying methanol and acetic acid emissions from detached desiccating poplar leaves. Data from colorimetric assays quantifying bulk cell wall acetyl and methyl esters is included. A summary spreadsheet of all the derived data, including leaf area and weight is also included. Volatile emission folder: • Real-time time meOH and AA emission data during leaf desiccation experiments (PTR-MS) • Near real-time time meOH and AA emission data during leaf desiccation experiments (online GC-MS) Cell wall esterification folder: • Raw absorbance data and derived total methyl ester content of AIR samples (methyl ester assays) • Raw absorbance data and derived total acetate ester content of AIR samples (acetate ester assays) • Derived methyl and acetate ester content of AIR samples Summary data: • A spreadsheet containing averages of the emissions and cell wall ester data used in the study
