Chemometrics in analytical science

Used particularly heavily in analytical chemistry and metabolomics, ‘chemometrics’ is the science of using mathematical or statistical methods to extract information from a chemical system. Beginning in the 1970s with the emergence of computer driven scientific investigation, chemometrics frequently uses methods found in applied mathematics, computer science and statistics.

Analytical Methods presents an excellent forum for such work, and below is a sample of the high-quality work we have published in this area.  These articles are free to access until 21st June 2012 so make the most of this opportunity and take a look!
