Applied Spectrometry: Bioanalysis I. Simultaneous Multispecies Spectroscopy A. Simultaneous equations 1. One wavelength for each component. No statistical redundancy. 2. Isosbestic points for normalization. A(λ) = b(ε A [A] + ε B [B]) but if ε A = ε B then A(λ) = b ε C total . Think of α fractions from wet chemistry for a place where this is handy. B. Chemometrics: use N wavelengths for M components, N>M. Has statistical redundancy to suppress the effect of noise. 1. Understanding these methods requires knowledge of matrix algebra, which isn't in Harvey and isn't a pre-requisite for this course. 2. In the Real World, Principal Component Regression (on type of Chemometrics) is the preferred way to carry out this analysis. Just so you've seen the words, the procedure is: define a matrix Z based on the array of molar absorptivities ε such that Z = XV with V the M × M matrix of eigenvectors of ε . The transpose of a matrix is what happens if the rows and columns are interchanged, Z i,j T = Z j,i .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
