Paper Abstract

A major driving force in the development of automated analytical systems is the production of reliable, relevant information within the timescale of a manufacturing operation. The overall time constraints can be met only if these systems are transferred from the analytical laboratory to the production area. Separative techniques do not lend themselves to this type of development. However, the performance of modern spectrophotometers, from the uv to mid ir, allows qualitative and quantitative information to be extracted from spectral data using powerful computational techniques, without prior separation of the components.
