Abstract
The present paper demonstrates the potential of FT-NIR spectroscopy combined with principal component analysis in the identification of various alcohols. Twenty alcohols with the number of carbon atoms between 1 and 8 could be correctly identified in the space built by first and second principal factors, based on the Mahalanobis distance and the residual of NIR spectra between the reference sample and unknown samples. Primary, secondary, and tertiary alcohols, except for methanol, showed specific tendency on location in the space. For the primary alcohols the possibility of distinguishing the alcohols with straight carbon chains from those with branched carbon chains was suggested. The loading coefficient spectra showed that the spectral differences dominated by the number of carbon atom were extracted in the first principal component but the second principal factor had to be used for the correct identification and classification on the type of hydrocarbon chains.
