Paper Abstract

We examine the use of artificial neural networks to classify IR spectra of organophosphorus pesticides and chemically related compounds. The spectra used were contributed from commercial libraries, government agencies, and government contractors and include spectra of pesticides, industrial precursors, hydrolysis products and other organophosphorus compounds. The data were pretreated to reduce artifacts arising from the variety of collection sources. The treated spectra were divided into spectral 'bins' of equal frequency width and transduced into data vectors whose elements consisted of the average absorbance value of the corresponding spectral bin. The spectral data vectors served as inputs to neural networks examined as spectral classifiers.
