What is Chemometrics?
Chemometrics is a rapidly growing area in analytical
chemistry. It is a combination of multivariate statistical
techniques, computer-based data analysis and chemistry.
With the growth in computer-controlled data acquisition,
the amount of data collected has meant
that hand calculations are no longer practical.
relieve the user of the burden of tedious calculation,
allowing them to concentrate on selecting the best
analysis method, examining the data for potential problems, and
building and testing models.
Common areas addressed by Chemometrics include
multivariate calibration, visualization of data and
pattern recognition. Although many of these techniques
have a long history in statistics, it is only with increases in computing power that they have become
suitable for the large real-life datasets encountered in
many branches of modern chemistry.
