Abstract

Multidimensional fluorescent chemosensor data looking at the effect that rhodamine boronic acid dyes and fluorescein aldehyde dyes have on analytes of interest was collected by the Strongin Research Group. These sets of data have resulted in great qualitative results. A method to quantify the results, however, was desired. The major objective of this research was to reanalyze these sets of data using a new multidimensional analysis technique called Parallel Factor Analysis (PARAFAC) to obtain quantitative results. PARAFAC was performed on the data and new promising quantitative results were obtained. The promising results offered assertion of the use of PARAFAC on future studies of new multidimensional fluorescent chemosensor data.
