Decompose

2nd-level necromancy

Casting Time: 1 action

Range: Touch

Components: V, S, M (a fine powder made of dried seeds)

Duration: Instantaneous

When you touch a non-animated corpse, it turns instantly into fine dust. Only resurrection or true resurrection can restore the creature to life afterward, and its spirit cannot be raised as undead. If cast upon an undead of CR 1 or lower, the target must make a Constitution saving throw. On a failed save, the undead turns into dust. If it succeeds on the saving throw, it takes 1d4 plus your spell casting modifier radiant damage. If the damage reduces the undead to 0 hit points, it also reduces the target to dust. Undead that have been turned to dust cannot be reanimated or returned to life except by resurrection or true resurrection.

At Higher Levels. The CR level of the undead affected and damage dealt increases by 1 and 1d4 when you reach level 7 (CR 2 / 2d4), level 13 (CR 3 / 3d4), and level 19 (CR 4 / 4d4).
