Hartley transform based algorithm for the qualitative and quantitative analysis of multi-component mixtures with the use of emission excitation matrices
MetadataShow full item record
Rapid advances in computer technology over the last few years and their integration into analytical instruments have led to tremendous increases in data collection rates. The need for tools to assist analytical chemists, and especially spectroscopists, in their task of interpreting such vast quantities of data is immediate.
This work focuses on the development of an algorithm based on an alternative to the Fourier transform, the Hartley transform, for the qualitative and quantitative analysis of multi-component mixtures using Excitation Emission Matrices. The algorithm involves the reverse search of a compressed reference spectral library for the identification of possible components of the mixture and the method of Non-Negative Least Squares for the quantification of the components.
