Abstract:

The identification of oils by field ionization mass spectrometry is reported. Two multivariate data analysis models are described a parametric statistical model that is based on the assumption of stochastic independence and an empirical model that can be used in a learning machine mode. The results of applying the empirical model to 154 quadrupole spectra and 42 sector magnet spectra are reported. Author
