Title: Guidelines for Calibration in Analytical Chemistry: Part I. Fundatmentals and Single Component Calibration
Published: March 01, 1998
Abstract: This IUPAC nomenclature document has been prepared to establish a uniform and meaningful approach to terminology, notation, and formulation for calibration in analytical chemistry. In this first part, general fundamentals of calibration are presented, namely for both relationships of qualitative and quantitative variables [relations between variables characterizing certain types of analytes and measured signals in certain positions of a measured function on the one hand and between variables characterizing the amount or concentration of the chemical species and the intensities of the measured signals, on the other hand]. On this basis, the fundamentals of the common single component calibration which models the relationship y=f[x] between the signal intensities y and the amounts or concentrations x of the analyte under given conditions are represented. Additional papers will be prepared dealing with extensive relationships between several signal intensities and analyte contents, namely with multivariate calibration and with optimization and experimental design.
