The Delaunay tessellation and topological regression is a local simplex method for multivariate calibration. The method, developed within computational geometry, has potential for applications in online analytical chemistry and process monitoring. This study proposes a novel approach to perform prediction and extrapolation using Delaunay calibration method. The main property of the proposed extension is the continuity of the estimated regression function also outside the calibration domain. To support the presentation, an application in estimating the aromatic composition in Light Cycle Oil by Near Infrared spectroscopy is discussed. © 2009 IFAC.

Microporous and Mesoporous Materials | Year: 2015
An iron (III) carboxylate Metal Organic Framework isostructural with MIL-100(Fe) was synthesized through a mechanochemical route. The material, rapidly obtained by liquid-assisted grinding at room temperature, was characterized by X-ray powder diffraction, infrared spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy, thermal gravimetry, nitrogen physisorption and adsorption microcalorimetry of ammonia. For comparison, the features of a commercial iron trimesate produced via electrochemical route were investigated as well. The ball-milled sample showed better crystallinity, associated with good thermal stability, higher surface area and pore volume. The adsorption performance of both the ball-milled and commercial samples for the ambient-temperature removal of 4,6-dimethyldibenzothiophene (4,6-DMDBT) from 4,6-DMDBT)/n-heptane solutions simulating a diesel fuel was also investigated. The maximum adsorption capacity for the ball-milled sample resulted twice as big as that for the commercial one. An interpretation of the different adsorption behavior is proposed. © 2015 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
