Second-order chromatographic photochemically induced fluorescence emission data coupled to chemometric analysis for the simultaneous determination of urea herbicides in the presence of matrix co-eluting compounds

New second-order data from urea herbicides were studied. The method allows quantitation overcoming the interference from foreign species, in a short time and using minimal solvent volumes.

A formaldehyde trace gas sensor based on a thermoelectrically cooled CW-DFB quantum cascade laser

An adoptive de-noising technique based on Wavelet Transform and a zero-air based background subtraction technique have been successfully applied to improve the H2CO sensor performance, yielding sub-ppb measurement precision without reducing the fast temporal response.
