Chemical identification method:

Data analysis method:
Integrating peak area, either by hand, or using a custom-written Matlab tool.

Quantification method:

Calibration method:
Calibration with a fourier transform infrared absorption spectrometer (FT-IR) and the absorption compounds of the chemical of interest from, e.g., PNNL, . Usually, this is performed by sampling from a pillow bag that is also used to sample for the FT-IR. . Also, serial dilutions
