A capillary gas chromatographic separation with Fourier transform infrared identification (GC/FT-IR) can yield structural information about volatile and semivolatile components of a complex mixture to a minimum identifiable quantity of about 5 ng for polar compounds using a lightpipe detector. Three procedures for analyzing GC/FT-IR data are currently in common use. In order of increasing selectivity they are Gram-Schmidt (GS) reconstructions, wavelength-selective chromatograms, and spectral library searching. This paper describes an approach by which functional and structural information can be extracted rapidly and on-line in a GC analysis with a specificity that is intermediate between that of selective wavelength chromatograms and library searching. In this approach principal components analysis (PCA) is used to build expert system rules to characterize molecular structures in a similar manner to those which we have recently described.
