Journal of Liquid Chromatography &amp Related Technologies (Impact Factor: 0.64). 06/2006; 29(7-8):1143-1176. DOI: 10.1080/10826070600574929

ABSTRACT Chemometrics aims at extracting maximum information through the application of statistics and mathematics to problems of a chemical nature. Over the years, chemometrics has become an important chemical discipline with a significant impact in analytical chemistry, including the incorporation of significant improvements in design and selection of optimal experimental procedures, calibration of analytical instrumentation, and advanced methods for analysis of chemical data.The application of chemometrics methods to separation science, mainly chromatography and capillary electrophoresis, has followed the same increasing trend as in any other field of analytical chemistry. However, reviews on the application of chemometrics in separation science have been very scarce. Therefore, in this paper, the development of chemometrics in chromatography and capillary electrophoresis will be presented with a view of the current state of the‐art and with the prospects for the future.

    ABSTRACT: This article presents a selection of the relevant issues that emerge at the interface between chromatography and chemometrics. In the first part, we present advantages and drawbacks of applying signal-enhancement, warping and mixture-analysis methods. In the second part, we discuss typical examples of misuse and abuse of chemometrics that can occur with those less familiar with the data-processing approaches. Finally, we conclude that close collaboration between the communities of chromatographers and chemometricians will allow a deeper insight into the chromatographic systems being analyzed and permit new chromatographic problems to be solved in an efficient, elegant manner.

    ABSTRACT: An ACE predictive investigation of protein-ligand binding using a highly effective chemometric response surface design technique is presented. Here, K(d) was estimated using one noninteracting standard which relates to changes in the electrophoretic mobility of carbonic anhydrase B (CAB, EC on complexation with the ligand 4-carboxybenzenesulfonamide (CBSA) present in the electrophoresis buffer. Experimental factors including injection time, capillary length, and applied voltage were selected and tested at three levels in a Box-Behnken design. Statistical analysis results were used to create a mathematical model for response surface prediction via contour and surface plots at a given target response (K(d) = 1.19x10(-6) M). As expected, there were a number of predicted solutions that reached our target response based on the significance of each factor at appropriate levels. The adequacy of the model was validated by experimental runs with the predicted model solution (capillary length = 47 cm, voltage = 11 kV, injection time = 0.01 min) presented in detail as an example.

    ABSTRACT: Two mathematical models with seven and six parameters have been created for use as methods for identification of the optimum mobile phase in chromatographic separations. A series of chromatographic response functions were proposed and implemented in order to assess and validate the models. The assessment was performed on a set of androstane isomers. Pearson, Spearman, Kendall tau-a,b,c and Goodman-Kruskal correlation coefficients were used in order to identify and to quantify the link and its nature (quantitative, categorical, semi-quantitative, both quantitative and categorical) between experimental values and the values estimated by the mathematical models. The study revealed that the six parameter model is valid and reliable for five chromatographic response factors (retardation factor, retardation factor ordered ascending by the chromatographic peak, resolution of pairs of compound, resolution matrix of successive chromatographic peaks, and quality factor). Furthermore, the model could be used as an instrument in analysis of the quality of experimental data. The results obtained by applying the model with six parameters for deviations of rank sums suggest that the data of the experiment no. 8 are questionable.
