Chemometrics in brief
Chemometrics may be regarded as the application of statistical and mathematical methods to research challenges in chemistry using modern information and communication technology.
A typical application of chemometrics is the multivariate data analysis of the analytical data obtained in research project in the process analytical chemistry or environmental chemistry. These methods are, for example, Principal Component Analysis (PCA) and Partial Least Squares Regression (PLS regression).
The application of modern PAT technology (PAT, process analytical technology) to pharmaceutical manufacturing processes demands the use and knowledge of appropriate chemometric tools.
