## Applying Savitzky-Golay filters in “R”

(This article was first published on NIR-Quimiometría, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers) When applying SG, we select a moving average window with an odd value “n” for the number of data points. SG fit a polynomial of “p” degree to this data points and give the value to the central point (this is the reason to have an odd...

Derivatives are a good way to extract information to our spectra. As we know NIR contents overlapping bands, and spectra must be treated with math operations in order to extract as much information as possible and to correlate it with the constituent &...

Once we have chosen the model, we can continue acquiring spectra of new samples. Spectra is exported to a txt or csv file and we imported in R to be reprocessed.We use the function “predict” from the PLS package. I have done this with 20 new sample...

In one of the columns, for constituent C16_0, one sample (57) has a value of “zero” (we could see this in the histogram).The reason for that is that the laboratory did not supply this value. The PLS regression will consider the lab value as cero, s...

There are several algorithms to run a PLS regression (I recommend to consult the books: “Introduction to Multivariate Analysis in Chemometrics - Kurt Varmuza & Peter Filzmozer” and “Chemometrics with R – Ron Wehrens”).We are going to use ...

It is clear that MSC does not remove the entire scatter in the raw spectra, so some of the information is hidden by the scatter. Improvement of the sample presentation will help to remove the scatter.We know that the first loading is much related to th...

As I told you I´m a beginner in "R", so I realize that I have to prepare my data a little bit in order to continue from my previous post ( NIT: Fatty acids study in R - Part 002) after getting some errors. Anyway I´m really fascinated ...
