Peak absorbance changes correlated to changes in species concentration have been the norm in applied spectroscopy, while baseline shifts have been more of an inconvenience. Taking the first or second derivative of the spectra eliminates these baseline shifts. However, with multivariate techniques becoming more readily available, repeatable baseline changes may now be monitored and correlated to specific physical changes. This concept has been studied by monitoring the concentration of titanium dioxid…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
